    Does it mess anything up if I start feeding a broody egg at different times during the day? Or is it ok? I just thought she was hungry, and I hope it isn't going to make her leave her eggs or anything. Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I want to make sure I get my first baby chickens. [​IMG]

    She will get off the nest to eat, drink and poop as needed, usually once or twice a day. You don't need to do anything, and it might be better to leave her alone as they are sort of in a trance when broody and setting.
