One of my hens, Apple, a golden campine has gone broody a few days ago. We are desperately trying to stop her because she is not eating at all. She refuses to eat. When I try to feed her, she thinks I am attacking her and starts pecking at me like mad. When I try to take her off the nest she just lays down in the exact same place I put her down and sits there puffed up. I have had 2 hens that went broody before this. One of them, it only took one day to stop her. Like, I just took her off and she forgot about it (she isn't the brightest hen in the coop) And the other one, it took me maybe three days to get her off. But Apple is the most intelligent of all the chickens and I can tell that she is really into being a mom. She got so angry before, that she started attacking my RIR. The poor thing didn't even do anything to her. But Apple got all the damage because my RIR is pretty big and Apple is almost the size of my bantams. They were fighting worse then my roosters ever fought(when Coco was still alive) I have never heard of hens fighting, can this actually happen or are my hens just strange? And Apple is of course sitting in the hens favorite nest so everyone is really upset about it. I have 6 nests for 9 hens and yet they just want that one I have heard of the wire cage working the best so we will try that but I just have a question, should we put a roost in there or does she just have to lay on the ground? Thanks for any help!
