I know some people think that having a broody is wonderful, but my hen has been in the nesting box for 2 weeks now. I thought that if I kept taking out the daily eggs (yes, the other four still lay in that one nesting box) that she would give up. Well today the other four started laying on the ground so I finally kicked her out of the coop today and shut the coop door...all five are free ranging, but the one I kicked out is made and squaking like mad. She's got to be hungry. Anyway, I'm getting some fertilized eggs probably in the mail tomorrow...should I just stick some under her or try to get her to stop brooding? And if I do give her some eggs; I know this is really stupid, but how will she take care of baby chicks if they hatch? Won't they fall out of the nest? Will she feed them? How will the others react to chicks? I don't want to waste my fertilized eggs.
