One of my hens went broody 6 days ago for the first time. I knew she could leave the nest if moved but we didn't have any other options so this evening my husband and I moved her and her eggs to a dog house in a sectioned off corner of the run. She spend the next two hours pacing, trying to get out into the run and back so the coop so I barricaded her in the dog house for the night. Its pretty warn today (80 or so this evening), but should two hours off the nest be a problem? Also curious of more veteran owners of broody hens think she'll continue to sit. Any ideas or suggestions?
