Anyone got any tips for making a hen broody??
Well, you can try putting some fake eggs in a nest and see if she'll start sitting on them. Ceramic or wooden eggs, ping pong balls, golf balls, or something else that represents eggs.
Some people put their hens in a dog crate with some of her eggs and she usually will start just sitting on them. But make sure she has food and water!
