Just curious, as I get next to no response on questions related to natural setting and hatching. I had two hens start to brood, and then quit after two days. Now I've got the real deal. A standard buff cochin who has been doing her duty well for 24 hours. She is flat as can be, giving little clucks now and then, etc. Sitting on about 12 eggs I think (I forgot to count ) The question I have is, since I have her kenneled inside, due to it still being dead winter here, how do I "make" her take potty and lunch breaks. Or, is it better to just let her be, and make sure the water and food are always fresh? She has not budged, except to turn around twice, in 24 hours.
