a broody hen to want to get out again after the hatch? My broody Buffy hatched one chick on Saturday, and still is sitting. She has no more eggs under her, just the one lonely chick. Food for both and water is nearby, and I clean all the poo out daily. I gave her the opportunity today, but she chose to stay put. She is in a dog crate in the coop. I put the others out to free range and left her in with the door open. But she just stayed there and called her baby to go under her wing. It was very cute. I stayed and watched awhile. Then the baby came out and they drank together and started scratching around. It is so adorable watching them interact.
