    Ok I am new to this broody hen stuff:/. We made a nice broody house for her a fenced little yard for her and her babies when they come. OK she is having her big broody poo right in her nest:he. I made her get up so I could clean the nest out. Now her rear end is very dirty do I have to wash her rear??She is not even on the fertile eggs yet.[​IMG] My DH is like are you washing her rear!!I really do not want to have to clean this nasty broody poo out of her nest everyday. Ok you can laugh now, I swear all I do is look at or clean chicken poo:lau

    Its natural.Try to just help her wipe the poo off. But I don't think it's the 'correct' way to do it.
