    I have a 6 month old Black Australorp that has decided to pluck out her breast and stomach feathers and sit on the nest of golf balls! She has only been laying about a month, and we pick up the eggs every day. She has adopted a couple of golf balls and a ping pong ball. I guess she is broody. After three days, I cannot seem to get her to change her mind. Please help!!!

    You may want to consider separating her and maybe put her in a crate or something [​IMG]
