Hi everyone- I'm hoping to pick your brain for some chicken wisdom. A few weeks ago I found a 'secret nest' in my garden. There was around 30 eggs in there that belonged to Delilah (my Wyandotte bantam whom I thought was not laying). Since removing the eggs she laid once in the nesting box and then never again so I was assuming there was another secret nest hidden somewhere. On Wednesday evening Delilah didn't return to her coop with her sisters- I couldn't find her anywhere. I thought she had escaped my yard and started putting up lost notices in my street. On Friday she re-appeared in my garden to have a quick feed then disappeared again. I've come to the conclusion that she's gone broody and is hidden away somewhere. I should note that there is no rooster in my flock of 3. I guess the obvious answer is to find her hidden nest although after several attempts I have failed. I'm worried about her out there at night. If I do find her how do I stop her being broody and teach her to lay in the coop? Also, how long does a hen remain broody? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
