We have our first broody!! would have been happier if she had done this in the spring, but Oh, well. We were going to leave her in the coop, but the other hens were laying on her - I don't just mean laying their eggs under her I mean laying on top of her! Then they started pulling her neck feathers off. She was in an end box, not their favorite, but one that you needed to pass to get to their favorite so they all stepped on her every day. So after a week we moved her to a broody box. Its a good size box (thanks DH!) and she has food and water. She has gotten up to poo, and I am pretty sure she is eating and drinking still but she looks dreadful! Her comb in very pale and flopped over. She has always been a soft combed hen, but she is just flopped. She will puff and trill if you pet her or try to change her water. I am trusting to nature to do what it should, but are there signs I should look for to see if she is not doing well??
