    I have an ISA Brown hen who recently went broody. She is about a year old and I bought two fertile eggs for her to hatch. Unfortunately, the hatch wasn't successful and she gave up after 24 days knowing they weren't going to hatch but she is still clucking. She stopped laying and hasn't started again so I'm not sure if she is still broody.
