Ok, so I've removed the nesting material, blocked off upstairs so she can't get to the laying boxes & she's still in brood mood. I've been getting her out of the coop so she can "play" in the yard & she just wants to go right back in. She hasn't laid an egg in almost a week and I didn't leave eggs in the nest when she laid them. How much longer is this going to go on? Is there something I can do to help her get back to the sweet hen she was a few weeks ago. Also, I got rid of the rooster yesterday after he chased me around the yard & I had to kick him to get him off of me. I'm beginning to think chicken raisin ain't all it's cracked up to be.
