So tonight begins with my first attempt at breaking one of our RIRs broody behavior. I have read up on this great forum how to achieve the most ethical way. I borrowed a good sized cat crate from my MIL. She has a bit of stretching room. I 1/4" hardwired the bottom. I elevated off the ground with standard bricks. I have her in the Chickmore Estate well protected from any night time predators. Fresh food, BOSS, a sprinkling of meal worms and of course fresh water. The other girls are above her in their roosts. Yes, I covered the broody crate top so she won't get pooped upon. I was out of town and don't know exactly when she went broody. I think I will give her until Wednesday afternoon. I just don't know how to judge her confinement. Any suggestions? Thoughts comments are always welcomed!!! Thanks for reading.
