I have a problem with Broody hens...we only have 4 hens, two of which are small black bantams. No roosters. I expected the broodies from the Bantams having had them as a kid. We got the wire crate, and when the first one went broody, it only took a few days to get her out of the mode, but then the 2nd went broody. Again just a few days. Now we have a problem. We have 3 broody's, the two bantams and the buff orpington. I don't have room in the coop for 3 crates (there's barely room for 1 with the other hens out). On top of that, we don't have daylight til I'm long gone for the day for work, and while it's getting cold at night (down to the mid-20's), sunrise isn't til 7:30 or so. I'm hesitant to leave the broody breaker outside in the dark. Days are still warming into the 60's, so I could leave the crate in the coop all day, but access the nest boxes gets difficult for the hens just due to the layout of the coop. I was considering just doing one hen at a time, but it's very difficult with the shortening days. Or could I broody break both bantams in one crate? That might make things easier. The buff orpington has already defeathered her breast...she's a scary hen when she's like this! Any recommendations? I had to chuckle (with a bit of dismay) when I went out to put the chickens to bed the other night and couldn't find Tiny, the smallest bantam. After frantic searching through coop and run, I finally opened the nest boxes and she was tucked in with the other Bantam in the same nest box with her head under Cass' wing. Silly chickens.
