    My Buff Orphington has gone broody and now has 4 with 1 on the way.
    My question is, what do you do when she doesn't go anywhere else to
    poo. She keeps pooing on her eggs. This is her first time brooding.
    She seems to not want to go to far from the chicks, just eats & drinks
    with them and doesn't really get off the nest to go out and do her business.
    Should I clean the eggs for her?
