I have a question about my broody and what to do about her.
Hen-Bree has not been able to get the chicks into the coop at night. I have had to do this, by hand. The other day though, DH tried to help me...and she attacked him and the chick causing injury to two chicks...I have taken care of their issues, they are fine...but now..even when I go in to help put them to "bed"..she tries to attack me and the chick(s). I don't know what is happening, she never had issue before with me reaching in and picking them up..now she is extremely protective...VERY extreme!
It is going to rain and I am not looking forward to getting everyone into the coop, it causes so much stress for her and the chicks ..but they won't go in...should I just let them out there? They will get wet..Hen-Bree will go in and they will just stay out. I have thought about having DH hold her (Hen-Bree), while I put the chicks into the coop, but I know she will be ape-**-crazy...and I don't know how she will react after I put her in with them. I am truly at a loss ....****Any and all input to this situation is much appreciated! Thank You-Danielle
