We suspected one of our hens had gone broody when she would disappear all day but would always return for breakfast (meaning a predator hasn't gotten her). We finally found her in a well hidden spot amongst the blackberry bushes behind our backyard fence facing the remainder of our couple acres! So tonight, once the rest of the flock was tucked in tight, I went out with a flashlight and found not only the few we noticed today but about 15 in total!! Question is, the nights are about 37 degrees and days are in the 60's. I can't be certain how many nights she wasn't on them but there were a couple that she got chased out of her makeshift nest when we would bring the dogs in at night (they would get too close and scare her away), then we would put her in the coop. At that time we didn't know where her nest was and how many eggs she had there! We're not concerned about production amounts (we have other non-broody hens laying) and really this is more of an experiment. Do you think they could survive and still hatch? Or should we just toss these for her sake and maybe get a few little newborns from the feed store to make her think they hatched?
