Wasnt expecting this so soon- my pullets are 7 months, just started laying 2 months ago. It seems I have a broody australorp. I noticed 2 days ago she was spending longer in the nest box. 2 nights ago she slept in the nest box ( well below the roosts) last night she slept in there. I coaxed her out this morning, by opening the access lid, but within 15 minutes she was back in there. What do I do? I dont want chicks, I dont have a roo and I have only one large community nest box ( 12"x 24"). We planned on dividing it this week.. I searched on this site for some answers....just not sure what to do or where to start.
