One of my banties has recently become broody. She is young, about 24 weeks. I have been removing the eggs so she stays in the box sitting on a fake egg. I feel kind of guilty as she is doing such a great job but I also feel like she is missing out on the fun of free ranging. I have removed her and put her out but she promptly returns to nest. Should I leave her a few eggs to hatch? Is there any harm in allowing her to remain broody?
