Well right now isn't really the best time for chicks anyway since it is still in the 20s at night..so I'm not too broken up about it...and as I said I am just going to put a dummy egg in a dog crate up there and maybe she will find it and have a sitting spell, at which point I will start giving her eggs to sit on...I know she'll go broody just because that is apparently all she does...She is some gamefowl barnyard mix and she lives for chicks...I also have 4 of ehr female offspring that should start laying in just a few months, and there is a really good chance that they too will have frequent broody spells, if not then that is alright too since I am ordering a few cochins in hopes that they will handle any brooding I need done..but so far I think my flock will have more than it's fair share of broody hens...I just need to get some things in place so we are ready to deal with it. I was thinking I could just leave them altogether, but everyone says that is a bad idea, and gives more than a few valid reasons that have convinced me that I will separate out any broody I get. I want everything to go well. So I'll place the fake eggs tomorrow, and see if I can't get her to start sitting again...the issue is that she is just so very very flighty...more so than her chicks are. They have come to know me as the bringer of food...she still acts like I am just warming up the pot just for her..
