    Our broody hen seemed annoyed at being moved to the brooder...wouldn't sleep in the nest. We put her in it and blocked the opening for several hours and then to the block off. She stayed in the nest so we thought, "YAY!" After another few hours, we put some eggs out for her and came back a little while later and found she'd pulled them all beneath her. AWESOME! Continued to leave the opening unblocked. Came out this morning and she's up walking around, pecking at the chicken wire acting completely un-broody again. What to do?

    Always a crap shoot, moving a broody. Moving at night, with as little stress as possible, is always reccommended.......Pop
