Well our Australorp, Millie has recently gone broody but the thing is that first of all, she is sitting on no eggs and second of all we don't want more chicks. I know this sounds strange but we live in a very urban area and if we get more roo's we would need to get rid of them. Also we don't have room for more chickens. I would love to watch her raise chicks but I can't let her. How do I get her to get off the nest and stay off of it because all she does all day is lie in the nest pretending that there are eggs under herShe doesn't peck or anything if I try to take her off but if i do take her out, she goes right back in so its pointless. I really don't want her to sit on the nest all day long because she doesn't eat a lot or have fun. So any ideas? Thank you!
