I just joined here yesterday so please bare with me, I only started life with chickens about 8 months ago and got them when they were 1 month old, I originally got them for my wife and the eggs that they would eventually lay but I quickly became attached to them and love all of them!!! They started laying and all was good then on one Saturday one became broody and then next day another one went broody I tried several different tricks didn't work so I went with the dog cage that I sat on saw horses, I only have 1 cage so I put the first one in it and after 3 days she was cured YAY cause it really was breaking my heart watching her in that cage and I usually ain't a softy!!! Then came time for the other and she is a lot smaller than the other and her feet are a lot smaller and I don't have any chicken wire to put on the bottom so I put a small strip of card board so she can at least stand on it but after 3 days she still broody so now finally to the question, is having that card board stopping her progress? I'm learning chicken life as I go so please bare with me and this site has really helped me cause before I decided to join every question I've had along the way Google sent me here!!!
