Broody Cochin - Should I move her?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

We are pretty sure my white cochin Paisley has gone broody.  We don't plan on having her hatch eggs and right now she is just sitting on her nest and/or sitting on infertile eggs.  I wanted to know if it would be best to move her somewhere else or leave her where she is.  I don't think the other girls would give her a hard time...  Thank you!

Just my opinion, If you are not planning on giving her some fertile eggs to hatch, then break the broodiness. Otherwise if she is broody, she will stay in her nest thinking that her eggs will hatch. You can put her in a cage above ground so the air cools her body or it the weather is warm where you live, you can dunk her is a cold water container. That should break her broodiness.
