I've only ever had 2 hens go broody, a welsummer and a nova brown (the eggs are hatching as i type from the nova brown) Both though have killed their first chick that hatched. Last time with the welsummer i then took the eggs from her and hatched them myself. Should i do the same now with the nova brown. Anybody any ideas why she would do that? From my experience if incubators hadn't have been invented then the hen would have become extinct by now! Any ideas of what i should do?
