Backgrounder: She is 27 weeks of age. I have no rooster - there's no sense letting her sit on infertile eggs. Day 1 - Wednesday 9/2: Mabel the Buff Orpington is on the nest in the morning - no big deal. She is still there when I get home last night. Move her off the nest and take all eggs. Day 2 - Thursday 9/3: Mabel on the nest this morning - today is an "at home" day for me, so I'm able to monitor her. Take her off the nest and take eggs away. She keeps going back. I keep taking her off and carry her to a region of my back yard remote from the hen house. She keeps going back to the nest, and fluffs up and growls when I or another hen come near. 2:45 CST - I remove her from the nest and sequester her in the "hospital coop" - a Ware Chicken Coop under the eaves of my house. She has food and water in the brig. She is not pleased with this arrangement. I plan to put her on the roost in the hen house tonight at "lights out" and see how tomorrow goes.
