Yeah, we have another hen that's gone broody. We are unable to count the number of eggs she's sitting on. It's a lot! She chose to take up residence in the new Booda Dome (kitter litter box), we picked up at a recent yard sale.
I've since moved that into our large dog kennel to keep her away from the other hens that keep trying to lay her more eggs!
The thought of a hen not eating or drinking for 21 days makes me nervous. I understand mother nature has taken care of these things for thousands of years before I came along, but I try to help where I can.
So, I placed a waterer, feed, some scratch and fresh veggies in the area. She does get up and stretch her legs on occasion, as these things are disturbed. I also like to wet a piece of bread, which she seems to enjoy. I know she has something that fills her tummy, along with getting some water. It's too hot to go without water.
She's content and I can hardly wait to see the new arrivals. Should be sometime this week!
