I need help desperately!!! My hen Brandy has been broody for 40 days she is siting on top of four fake Easter eggs. The problem is ..... its winter here in Northern Michigan!!! I have witnessed her leave the coop twice. The first time she left the coop she was looking for the rest of the flock and when she found them four of my other hens started to chase and peck her so she returned to the coop. The second time was when everyone was leaving the coop in the morning it was chilly ( 22 degrees ) she had a fit at went back in. She has been eating apple, feed and scratch and always has accesses to clean Luke-warm water. But her comb and face is a pink Grey color and I'm worried, she acts healthy and has been eating drinking as well as relieving herself. Is there another option to breaking her broodiness because I certainly can not put her in a cage she will freeze to death !!! Its a difficult situation because hens are generally supposed to go broody when its warm I'm lost and I'm a new chicken mama who's worried about her girl HELP!!!!!!!!
