    Thank you all for your great advise - my broody BO I think is broke. I followed everyones advise and placed her in a wire cage for 3 days and I think it did the trick as she was not in the nest box this morning.

    My question is how long will it take for her to resume laying? She was broody for about a 2 weeks.

    We had a Partridge Rock that was broody for about 3 weeks. We didn't try to break her and let it run its course. One morning she was out and about with the other girls and I think was back laying in about 5 days.
