Would removing the beloved turtle toy un-broody her? Or would that depress her or not work anyway? I work all day, so it's fallen on the DH to gently coax her off the nest a few times to eat, drink, poop, and bathe, but she hurries right back to that nest as fast as she can. I worry she'll get ill not getting enough to eat or drink or moving around much, and obviously nothing will hatch from the toy, so what should I do?
I should add she's full on broody. Not just nesting. She's lined the nest with her plucked down, turns and moves the turtle toy and defends her nest from everyone. Except me. I can touch and pet her even reach hands under her.
Cas loves my DH too, so she loudly complains when he coaxes her off the nest but she'd never hiss or nip at him. Boy I'd hear about it if she did! Lol
So, any advice here? I know it's an odd situation, but as you all know, my Cassy is weird anyway! Lol
