My Buff Orps are only 7 months old, but one of them became broody 3 days ago. She has still been laying eggs every day, but she won't get off of the nest box until I throw her out-- and she just gets right back in. (Plus she's making this strange sound and puffing up her feathers while attacking my hand-- I've never seen broody before but I assume this is it) How do I make her stop? I read about giving her a clutch of ice cubes... tried that, and she just sat on them anyway until they melted. Now that my 3 layers are done laying for the day I just removed the nest box until tomorrow to see if that helps. I wasn't expecting this so early-- she's only been laying for about 6 weeks. Any suggestions? I'd give her fertile eggs but it's going to be over 100 degrees here soon, and that doesn't seem like a great time to raise chicks.
