I have a broody hen but the other hens wont let her brood, so what should i do?
If you have a dog kennel you could move her... and the eggs... and provide food and water in there.
I have tried this and she doesnt stay on the eggs.
for how long and what's the temp there?
The temp. has stayed in the 30s, & she dont even give the eggs any attention when i move her.
I'm a bit confused. Do you want her to be broody? And what do you mean when you say "the other hens won't let her?" If she is really and truly broody, not much will stop her. They can lose interest when moved, which may be what's happening in your case.
Yes i want her 2 be broody.& the other hens jump into the nest and start peckng at hr till she gets up.
