Our Australorp hen has been broody for about 5-7 days now and she just will not give up. We have put her in a bucket of water a few times a day, put a cold pack under her, taken the eggs away every day, locked her outside in the run with the other chickens for pretty much the whole day and removed the nest boxes. Ebony is still persistent and this morning found her under two more eggs, clucking and puffing up when I go near her. She doesn't peck and bite luckily and will let me pat her and see the eggs under her. We have decided to let her have them and see what happens. Though do you think it is too late to start the 21 days over again? What will happen if it is?
