I have had chickens for 3 years and last week I have my first broody hen. She laid on the same nest for 3 days. When I came out the fourth day she was in a different box. She is not one of the dominant hens so after researching I assumed she was pushed out by other hen so she went to new box. When I fed, she came out to eat so I moved the eggs to the original box and she returned to her original nests. When I came out the next day she was in a different box again. So I did some more research and I found that you should separate her. So I build a little section where others could not bother her and moved her and her nest at night. When I went out to check this morning she wasnt laying on the eggs. I searched your forum and some say its a good idea to move some say its not. I have found answers that she can be off for 10 minutes up to 5 hours. Who is right? It was in the high 20/s a few nights and only in the low 40's during the day so Im guessing the eggs are no good as they were left several times but I hate to get rid of them. Can I put others fresh eggs in if she decides to lay on the eggs again or should I just put her back with the others and wait ?
