I have had an easter egger broody for what seems like forever. Today I finally got out the egg chart and figured out when the last time she laid an egg was... June 13th!!! Holy cow. That's 11.5 weeks. I have tried various methods of breaking her from "let her sit, she'll give up" to the wire cage method... but she'll even sit on a table in my garage and pretend to brood her invisible eggs. Yeah, she's been broody so long she's crazy with the tactile hallucinations. I've decided to give in today and let her sit on some eggs. But I'm going to separate her in a cage in the coop with her own food and water since she's so skinny. She did fail a duckling surrogacy program earlier this week. She loved them but they hated her with a passion. And she's still broody. But our summers here are so short! She's spent the entire summer pretty much in a nesting box. Crazy chicken. What's your record?
