    Hi

    One of my batams has been sitting on eggs for 3 days now. When I take her off she gets cross and goes straight back on to the eggs. I have taken the eggs away but then she just went and sat whre the eggs were. She has just started doing this. There is no mcock so no chance of hatching. Any ideas what I need to do

    Thanks

    Sean

    you could either get her some fertile hatching eggs or keep fighting the broodiness which could take days or weeks
