    My maline pullet just starting laying may 21st 2016. She is about 6 months old and has been showing sign of broodiness mire and more. Sitting in empty nesting boxes for hours. Adopting the other eggs. These are just a few things listed that ive noticed.

    Since ive noticed her behavioral changed o have done the following:
    Remove beoody hen from box and coop area.

    Block off nesting boxes after eggs have been collected from my morning layers.

    Close the coop and have all the hens free range from sun up to sun down ( they've always had that privilege)

    Please, any good advice that seemed to work for you in the past would be awesome!


    Im sure my broody hen is just as agro wirh me as i am with her [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
