    Hi Everyone;

    My favourite girl has been sitting way too long on a full nest. I can see some eggs that look of developed. But it's been almost two months. It's her first time and she made a nest that got a bit of rain and cold. She is so devoted. I feel sad for her. I wonder if I should just leave her to sort it or what is best for her. I bring her food and fresh water.

    If the eggs are 2 months old, toss them all. She'll eventually get over it. If she's been brooding for 2 months, she needs to stop.
