I have a Buff Orpington that is definitely broody. No rooster so all unfertilized. The other hens are resorting to laying on the floor even tho I provided another box. My question is should I be leaving her eggs under her? I've been taking all the eggs every day. I just pet her a bit and lift her up, scoop out the egg and then set her down again. How long does this last? By the way, I'm in Upstate New York, and it's absolutely frigid and snowy. I do have a light on a timer to supplement the light they get but it goes off after a couple hours for the night. I've been on this forum under my daughter's user name for about a year but she recently moved out and now I have my own account.
