I have seen a bantam wyandotte die on the nest from overbrooding

Is that because of not eating and drinking?

That's right Bork. Some girls don't get off the nest for a daily stretch, eat, drink or Poo th_Noooo.gif my silkies don't move much so I make sure they have water and food within a beaks reach. As for pooping in the nest I just clean as much out as possible and pick up the girls and move them outside every now and then.
