So, let's say that I, theoretically of course, have a broody hen. If I let her hatch eggs will she stay broody after that? or will she return to her normal chicken-y duties ( Laying my eggs!) How long would it take for her to stop being broody if I did not allow her to hatch eggs? The eggs she's trying to hatch now are my other girl's daily eggs, which are not fertile. This is my first broody girl and I'm not sure what to do.
