I have a broody hen. My shipped eggs come tomorrow. She's currently sitting on unfertilized eggs. I have 2 questions: 1). She doesnt get up to eat and drink much and it is August in the South so it's getting hot. We offer her water frequently on the nest but she mostly ignores it. She does get up once a day presumably to eat and drink a little. Does their metablism change so they can do this for 3 weeks? 2). I don't have a big flock and just have a double wide egg box which she is sitting in which is frustrating the other hens because she's so mean! I made a temporary nesting box and moved her "blank" eggs and she wouldn't sit on it and just walked around the yard in a huff. Any suggestions as to how to convince her to move to a temporary nest?
