Hey yall so my brahma hen recently got broody for the first time, and has not been out of the nest at all as far as I have seen. She doesn't come out in the morning, and doesn't get food or water that I've seen. My sister said she saw her out once but that's the only sighting of her. She also hasn't been laying eggs....is she not broody and is something wrong? I know being broody is normal for them, but this is my first time and I am unsure. She is currently laying on two ceramic eggs and two old duck eggs that have been hidden and found weeks later. I'm concerned for her. Today I took some soaked food into her and put a bit in the end of her beak and she swallowed. She didn't fight me much but maybe she just didn't want to leave the eggs? I'm not sure. I left the food next to her and I will check later. Help!
