Well my lovely Wyandotte has gone broody again...she is sitting in the nest box this time and keeping eggs warm and not out with the flock. Soooo, there is no rooster, these eggs are not fertile and I am not hatching. Yesterday I took her (easily) out of the nest box (she is very docile) and plopped her down with the rest of her flock where she started foraging. And removed eggs underneath her. They were nice and warm of course. I think she has been picking a few breast feathers but not really noticeable... There aren't any apparent interaction problems with the rest, they just get in the nestbox with her or go to the other nestbox to lay. No arguing or squawking or anything. If I just take her out everyday when I feed the flock, and plop her down with them, do you think this is adequate? I don't really want to crate her or ice her unless I absolutely have to. She is not trying to escape the yard....like she did last summer... Any thoughts?
