Good Morning, firstly please let me say I LOVE your page, and get great joy out of your photos and posts. Now on another note, I need your help. My Plymouth Rock is broody and we have put some fertilised eggs under her. She has been on the eggs for almost 1 week. The problem is she doesn't appear to be leaving her nest to eat or drink. Yesterday, after 2 days of not being sure if she had left her next, I forced her off and she drank for around 5 minutes, ate a little and then headed back to the nest. This morning I again forced her off, she had one mouthful of water and only a little food before getting back to her eggs. She is in a seperate coop with food and water but neither appear to have been touched and she is in the same position in the afternoon when I get home from work so I don't think she has moved all day. I am in Brisbane, Australia, and it is almost summer, the days are getting quite hot so I am really concerned that she will dehydrate. Can you offer any suggestions? A million thanks in advance.
