My Polish x, Harriet, has been going broody over and over again over the last few months. So I have given in and allowed her to have 6 eggs to incubate. Now in the past I have tried to break her broody habits, as she would sit on nothing and not leave the nest at all. Not wanting her to starve/thirst to death I would take her out as often as possible - or put her in a broody cage. Now that she has eggs, I am taking her out in the morning to make sure she eats and drinks. My main question is: For how long can she leave the eggs whilst she tends to her own needs? Thanks.
