hi, so here is the story I hatched some chicks with my friend last year and this year one of them, Mellow has decded to go broody and has been on the eggs for 3 days so far. We do have a roo so the eggs are fertile. Every time my other hen lays an egg she also 'adopts' that one. Since we realised that Mellow does not come off the nest I have been taking her off the nest every day at around 5:30 for 15 -20 mins. Is this too long? Another question I have is do chickens go into lockdown for the last 4 days and if so shall I give Mellow extra food so she does not go hungry while she is waiting? Do mention if i am overreacting and should just let mellow do her thing!! One last thing can i candle the eggs? thank you!!
