I have a hen who has been broody for over a month now. There are no roosters so there will be no chicks and we collect eggs everyday. All of the hens lay in the area and when they lay she takes their eggs. We force her off the nest 2x a day and she eats/drinks well. Her poops are good, firm, and big. My concern is she may be getting sick. Her comb now lays over and she is constantly hot (well, has been since broodiness set in). Weight seems okay so far. We have had others do this, but none for so long. Can anyone tell me what to do? Thanks! GREAT suggestions. Thanks for the help. I put ice under her this morning and opened up the top of the nest so it isn't so comfy. Tonight I'll move her inside a wire cage. I am WAY over her mood. I need eggs!!
