    Try putting wooden eggs under there and see how she acts. You may need to try and get fertile eggs from someone on here if she is broody. If you even want to hatch that is.....

    I guess the "vey" in your headline is a typo, but at first I thought your hen was "vey" in the Jewish language of "oi vey"! Very cute. [​IMG]
