Hello! I have a hen that went broody and just recently hatched out some chicks (not even her babies!). She is flighty by nature so I took the chicks to raise inside so they would be friendly. She resumed being a normal chicken for about a week but now she is sitting on eggs again! Is this healthy for her or should I boot her off the nest so she can regain strength again?

I would boot her off. Broodies tend to loose quite a bit of weight while sitting, and doing it back to back like that can be detrimental to their health.

Good luck.
