Hi there! I'm sure this has been asked before, but through endless searches I can't find my answer. I have a silkie sitting on 8 eggs. She's been on them about a 6 days now and I have a couple of questions. It's our first time doing this. 1. She has been leaving the nest to poop. So the eggs have crusty poop on them as well in the hay. Should I clean out the nest and put new hay down??? 2. I was able to feed her by hand a couple of days ago, but now she is not accepting any food. And she obviously isn't leaving the nest because she's even pooping in it. I take her off 2x a day to put her to the waterer so she can drink. Should I just let her be and assume that if she gets super hungry she will eat?? Should I try enticing her with scratch (her favorite treat) or yogurt or something? I can't imagine that she can go another two weeks with no food. She is separated from her flock in another part of the coop, but is sharing it with 7- 2 month olds. Thank you BYC'ers for any input!
