    We finally got a broody hen and it turns out to be one of the ones we didn't expect. When we bought her we were told she was a Rhode Island Red Cross and I didn't think it would go broody but she did! There's just one problem, every time you go within a 1m (3 ft) of her she just jumps of the best because she is quite a flighty bird. We have her in a section where the other chickens can't get so she doesn't wonder off but she is still quite flighty when you go near her. Any solution to this??
