I have two hens, Darla and Nettie. Darla has gone broody, even though she has no eggs! I was out of town for 10 days. I had a pet sitter come in in the mornings and feed the girls and let them out, and my non-chicken-guy husband closed them in at night, after they went to roost. Well, I got home yesterday morning, and found Darla in the nest box (only have one), where she stayed ALL day. I asked my husband if she was in there when he went to close up, and he said "oh yeah, she's been in there every night". She only laid 2 eggs while I was gone. I took her out of the nest box and she seemed perfectly normal. She ate and drank, then went right back to the nest. This morning I took the nest box out of the coop. (My other hen, Nettie, sometimes sits in there but has never laid an egg in it. She lays out in the run, or drops them from the roost at night!) Now Darla is nestled down in the wood shavings in the coop, where the nest box was. My next thought is to close them out of the coop altogether during the day. Today's too nasty out (snow) but tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and warmer. Am I going about this the right way?? Will she stop on her own eventually? Is there a reason not to just wait it out? Is it because she won't eat enough? Am I asking too many questions? Advice, please?
