    I got a broody hen from my friend she was crazy broody she wouldnt even eat or drink. I moved her at night so that is would be better for her and now she will not sit on the eggs or even lay an egg. Did I break her broody by accident? Will so go back to being broody?

    Yes, the move broke her broodiness. She will most likely go broody again - perhaps not until next spring.

    That is sad because I just bought fertile eggs for her. Might have to go another way

    I agree, and I'm sorry. I know it's a disappointment. :eek:(
