Our broody won't quit. Is this bad for her? She is very thin and could she be getting sick from sitting all this time? This may be a silly question but where are those eggs she would normally be laying? I kept trying to discourage her and have been taking eggs out from under her for weeks. Nothing was working. I tried locking her out of the henhouse all day but she would pace at the door and run in and sit on the nest. Finally, I let her sit on one egg because the hen who laid it was killed and thought it would be nice to have her hatch it out. (hope it is fertile egg) Has anyone else ever had a hen sit this long???? Silly girl.
