    Okay so I have a broody that is sitting on eggs, this is only the second time we have had a broody. I am going down every day and making her get off to eat and do her stuff. She is pretty stubborn though, a lot of times she will take one sip of water and sit back on the eggs. My concern is it isn't uncommon for her to have accidents on the eggs. Does this usually hurt the babies? I don't think I can get her to quit.

    Thanks,
    Michelle:(
