This is just the 2nd time i have dealt with a broody hen. she is so small i hate to think of her losing a lot of weight! i have fixed her scrambled egg...just a small banty egg...for breakfast the past 2 mornings before i leave for work. i know she gets up at some point when the temps are warmer in the afternoon. is it ok to keep giving her some egg in the mornings? or is it too much protein? she is in a pen by herself right now which she seems to love. on my days off i will be sure she gets out with the others for a bit. if i just open her pen the others (14 of them) will rush in and check everything out and try to take over her nest box. thanks for any pointers.
