Has anyone else observed their broodies behavior on the last day of hatch? I have a showgirl that has been broody forever. I finally took pitty on her and secured some fertile eggs. I checked on them today because I expect them to hatch tomorrow. Low and behold 2 have pipped and all three are peeping. I made certain to check them when she was out for her morning feeding...part of her normal routine. But she has not returned to the nest all day (4 hours now). She shows no inclination towards going into the nest box either. Is this behavior that anyone else has observed? I also noticed a good quantity of feather loss in the pen. Could she be going into molt and loosing interest? Hope there's someone out there that has some input!
