I'm thinking of sticking some eggs under my broody, but I am worried that she will come off them during the course of incubation, as she has been sitting for 9 weeks already, on nothing, and I have been trying to get her to stop. Would you say she will continue to sit on eggs, now that they are under her? Any ideas would be good.
