Broody Hen laying? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

 

Just want to say THANK YOU!!!!! Broody Buster appears to have done the trick. Let Sue out late this afternoon and she spent 1.5hours or so pottering around the yard before dark, then after they went to bed I checked in on them, and all 3 lovely ladies sitting on the perch, not in a nesting box. Does this means she's cured?

But be aware, broodiness can return quickly in some hens, my worst offenders lay 8-10 eggs than go broody again, over and over and over.

So if that happens, do i just put her in again?

Unless you want to use her to hatch some eggs, I would break her quickly each time, the longer she's broody the longer it takes to break her.
