At least she's taking good care of them!! She will eventually get over it probably though.

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.

Chickens a hobby or a job, not really sure but it it fun to do!

A wonderful husband, 2 dogs, 5 cats, More chickens than I can keep up with, a son with his cat.

You should not speak for Atheists, and this is not the forum for you to be spouting beliefs that you think are better than others.  A little compassion, curiosity and empathy would go a long way in your religious zealotry.

Always a good idea to have a look at the dates before dredging up an old thread smile.png

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.
