I have a broody that is settin on 12, er was seetin on 12, now 11, i found a sticky spot in her nest ans when i stuck my fingers in there i came up with a bit o' yolk on my mingies. Could she have broken and then eaten that egg ? She's been broody 'bout a week and has only been off a time er 3 to git some treats and stretch in the sun. No more than 15-20 minutes at a time. I have anothe hen that keeps acting broody in the other nest box but never goes thru with it. Could she have been the culprit while Goldie was out a eatin and stretchin ?
