My Millie Fleur D' Uccle 18 month old hen started crowing a monthor so ago. (and yes we do have plenty of roosters around here so she doesnt need to become a rooster) So then a feww weeks later she rips her feathers out of her chest and becomes broody within the week. I finally see her sitting on a nest and acting broody. Well over the past 2 weeks the eggs have mysteriously disapeared(suppose she is eating them as she hasnt left the attic in the coop that I know of). Well now she has no eggs, is still doing the broody prance every once in a while and still crowing. She has taken over the attic as her domain. And now this morning I saw her fighting with her rooster mate. This has all happened within hmm (5 weeks?) SoI am wondering if there is any hormone or anything I can give her so she will stay female or is she doomed to 'convert' when she molts? Will she stop this behaviour at some time? Thanks Why is she acting this way?
