Ok, I have never had a chicken be either broody or egg bound so I don't know what I am looking for. One of my red sexies has been setting in the nest box since my DH went out to gather eggs around noon. We don't gather eggs everyday so I'm not sure how long she has been in the box. I know she wasn't there on Saturday. She isn't showing any signs of distress. No huffing, puffing, straining or anything like that. Alert. Watched as we changed the water, filled up feeder and spread DE. However, she didn't even flinch when I threw a handfull of scratch on top the DE (I let my chickens do the hard work of turning the litter) The others were going nuts in the run where I had spread some too. If she has gone broody, what do I do to bring her out of it? I don't have a roo. Heck I only have 2 nest boxes for the 10 of them. (it's the only place they will lay) I don't need any baby chicks. 10 chickens are more than enough for me right now. If she is egg bound what do I do? Help!
