    Hello,
    My hen, after undergoing stress from me peeking many times had explosive diarrhea right in her nest. It got on some eggs. I cleaned it up. I have been feeding her mash, greens and a little fruit and veg. Is she ok? Stressed from me bugging her maybe?

    Don't bug her. That broody poop can be a MESS.

    Have food available that she would normally eat and don't overdo it. You didn't mention how long she has been setting?

    Good luck.

    She has been sitting for just 3 weeks, 3 chicks now. So she is not sick, she is just stressed from me?
