So, my only hen that its laying decided she wants to sit on her egg. I removed the egg (it is not fertilized) and she stayed in the box. When I went to put them to bed, she was still in the box so i pushed her out and made it so she couldn't get back in and she went to sleep with the rest of the chickens. Today, I opened the coop and she came out with the others. However, when my daughter got home from school, she was back in the nesting box sitting on nothing. My daughter removed her and when I checked on her a little while later, she was clucking around the box trying to get back in. Tonight, when I put them to bed, she was sleeping with all the others again. Do I just keep doing this everyday?? I have all Silkies and know they tend to go broody, so I guess my biggest question is: Is it bad to just let her spend her days in the box sitting on nothing??? All my chickens are still young and we aren't ready for more chicks at this time, so giving her chicks to raise isn't an option right now. I appreciate any responses!! Thanks!
