wasn't sure to post this here or in the hatching thread sorry! also my first post, been creeping the last year but too afraid to join in. I know broodys sometimes need to be removed from the nest to eat/drink but my young silkie hen went broody about 3 days ago, and has eaten once I removed her and showed her nice food, but will not drink and her crop is hard and full now. she has not pooped since going broody and I think its because she needs water to digest it? I tried dipping her beak in and she has had a little from me spooning in on the end of her bean but I'm afraid its not enough. she just has no interest in anything but sitting on her eggs. don't really wanna,break the broodiness and have to raise the eggs myself and even if I did I'm sure I'll face the same problem with her in the spring when she broods again.
