In the Brooder
- Mar 30, 2013
Last week, through this site i discovered on of my girls has gone "broody". I tried putting her on the roost at night just to discover her right back in the nesting box. I then tried the wire cage trick. Friday morning through sunday night she spent in the cage ( I FEEL HORRIBLE) I did let her out once on saturday then right back into the cage. Last night i thought "for sure this has been long enough". I let her out to free range with the other lady, closed the gate so she could not get to the nesting box, and i find her triyng to nest on the ground. I picked he up and brought her back to the yard, and you guessed it, she bee-lined it right back to the nesting box. I guess I have to deal with her until she is ready to be done? Please help!
