Broody hen in winter, what to do? - Page 6
I took momma and the babies out to the coop and they are all doing good. I sold the 24 that I had and the last two to hatch are in a tote in the bathroom. I am working on the incubator to get it fixed and will be starting a new batch this weekend just in time for Easter. They will also all be sold at this time.

I know this thread is old but I'm having a similar problem and don't want to put a second clutch under her, I have a broody breaker cage but it is outdoors and can not be moved it is against the garage wall but that's the only shelter other than a roof. The temps are dropping into the teens not below zero yet but pretty cold would she be ok in the breaker for a few nights until broken or will she need to keep setting until she gives up. She has lost weight and I don't want her health declining anymore with it being so fridged.
