I have a broody hen... In February! I took her egg this morning and she still has not left the nesting box. I have golf balls in them from when I first was training them but they all seem to like them so I have just left them. Anyways she is out there trying to hatch a golf ball. I dont know if she will lay another egg while broody or not but if she does or if she switches nesting boxes and atarts aitting on someone elses egg is there any harm in letting her try to hatch it? I know it is not warm wnough out for the chick to survive and it still probably won't be 3 weeks from now. I will gladly bring the chick/chicks inside and out in my brooder. Is this a bad idea? I would love to eventually start hatching my own chicks. Eapecially if I don't have to do any work.
