I have a hen who is brooding. She isn't laying eggs and sitting on them, just sitting in her nest. Is it okay to let her brood or do I need to put her in a separate cage with no nesting materials to break her of this? I'm just concerned that she won't eat or get water unless I lift her out of her nest. All help is appreciated as I am new to raising chickens but certainly enjoying it!
