I am a busy teacher, mum and backyard chicken enthusiast. I have had chickens of various breeds on an off for 10 - 12 years, but only tried incubating recently. They are wonderful pets with benefits. However, I am constantly learning about what they can and cannot do. Our recent broody Light Sussex managed to kill a full clutch of fertilized eggs: cracking eggs, standing on some, tossing others out of the nest etc. Very disappointing. However, after 5 weeks, from beginning, she is still clucky and annoying the rest of the hen house as we try to snap her out of it. Do I persist in keeping her uncomfortable so she rejoins the flock, or give her some eggs again? Or live chicks? Last year we tried the live chicks, but I don't think I had let her sit long enough before introducing them. Can someone help me through this one?
