I remove her from the nest as many time as I can, but who knows how long it will take to break her. the first time she went broody, it took 6 weeks!
my favorite part is when I open the nest box door and she puffs up and makes the horrible shrieking sound at me.
I'll try to get a pic of her all puffed up tomorrow!
Right now I have 2 broodies well 3 but one of them hatched her chicks a coulple of days ago. Under my Buff Orpingtion hen I have 2 dozen Splash, Cuckkoo, Golden Cuckkoo, and Blue Marans!, and under my other hen I have 1 dozen of BCM, Amerucan, Silver Laced Wyandotte and Olive Eggers. I can't wit for them all to hatch!! . Why don't you get some fertile eggs and let her hatch them?
