Has anyone had a broody die because she wouldn't leave the nest? Just curious...I made my hen get out of the nest for a few minutes this morning. I'm not sure if she had left in several days. I couldn't even hardly see her breathing, so I was worried. I had decided yesterday, mom knows best, but moved her anyway. She was only out for about 10 minutes. She didn't drink any water either, not that I saw. I wonder if their bodies go on some sort of shut down, like the way bears hibernate.
