I have a broody hen at the moment. She started being broody about 5 weeks ago. So instead of cracking her by using various methods i decided to let her sit on eggs after she had been sitting in the nest for 2 weeks. The eggs were due to hatch 3 days ago i.e they are now on day 24. How much longer should i leave the eggs under her? Also after this failed attempt to hatch eggs will she stop being broody and start to lay again. Or will she just keep on sitting? Any help is much appreciated as this is my first ever broody.
