I had a cochin pullet who went broody at like 24 weeks a while back- and she sat on the eggs for a solid 10 days until she was bullied off. My question is, obviously I should have isolated her- but what about food and water? I kept putting food near her and offering her water at least once a day, which she seemed greatful for. But should I do that? I kinda thought about putting a broody in a bigger sized pet carrier with a little nest at the back and some food and water on the door? I've never had a broody. lol. Our chickens when I was a kid were RIR's, and we ate them before they ever got broody.
