I have never been around a broody hen, all our baby chicks come from the mailman. So when our buff Orpington went "broody" I didnt catch it right a way. See, I'm pregnant and get morning sickness everynight from about 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm so my family has been taking care of the chickens for over a week . Two of my kids said Sunny wont let us take her eggs, she's sleeping in the nesting box, she wont eat out of our hand and she looks crazy. The next morning I went to check on her because it sounded like she was sick and or dieing. When I went and checked on her, every thing my kids and said was right, so I tried to check her for a wound or something, when I put my hand under her, SHE HAD NO FEATHERS ON HER BELLY! We live in Wisconsin it's 55 degrees out! We think she started sitting Aug 28 or a couple day's before. We dont know what to do, She is in a nesting box with no room around her for a chick, it would fall to the ground if it hatched in the box. We also have other hens in the coop and 7 roosters. I dont even know if the eggs have chicks in them, is there any way to tell with a flashlight? What should we do?
