i have a hen that I hatched in April and she will not leave the nesting box. She has been in there for almost 2-3 days, and i haven't seen her leave. Is she broody? I am not sure of her breed because she was hatched. I am a new chicken owner and a little worried about her. If she is broody, should i leave her in the nesting box, or take her out so she can eat and drink?I have another hen that has been laying in the dirt because she doesn't have her own eating box, I also have 3 roosters, so some of the eggs are fertilized.
