What is the longest that your broody has set for? I have a GLW that has been broody going on three weeks now. It has been a mess trying to get eggs for her, a lot of ups and downs trying to get eggs and at the end of it all the final eggs won't even be here until this next week. So my question is if I ever get these eggs and put them under her will she be ok for setting for almost 5-6 weeks. That just sounds like such a long time. I don't want her to get sick or anything just because I couldn't get the egg situation worked out sooner. She is VERY serious about this brooy thing too. She never wants to get off of the eggs that she stills from the other hens. I have to roll her out of the nesting boxes to get her to go and eat/drink. What are the odds she will still want to sit? I know you can never really know these things but I figured hearing others experiences could give me an idea. The things I have learned out of this is make sure you have a plan before you have a hen go broody on you. Or should I try to break her of being broody and make a make shift incubator for the eggs I should be getting.
