I have an australorp who has been sitting on a golf ball and or eggs other chickens have laid for about 7 weeks now. She is very thin, almost no feathers on her chest (where the eggs are). I remove the eggs daily and scoot the golf ball out of the nesting boxes, but sure enough, by the end of the day she has moved the ball back in her box or has moved to where she has found another egg. She has always been very broody, laying about 2-3 weeks then broody for 3, not laying for 3, repeat the cycle.... Would getting her fertile eggs stop this madness? If she has been broody for so long, is there a danger she will abandon the eggs before they hatch? Will she commit suicide by way of longing for motherhood????
