Hi there! My 5 month old barnevelder that only started laying on Valentine’s Day has decided to go broody. I have always left a fake egg in the 2nd side of the nesting box in order to have the chooks lay in both nests, but every day I would find the fake egg back in the other side where the three chooks laid so now I know who the culprit is. She has been sitting 2 days now and refuses to budge regardless of me lifting her out and taking her to the other side of the pen and locking her out. She puffs up and scolds me and remains in her position until I open the door and then she bee lines back to the nest which I keep cleared of any eggs now. I don’t particularly want to set eggs but may not have a choice it seems. Might try the old dunk in the bucket trick tomorrow and if she still refuses will give her her way. Unless someone has any better ideas?
