It's been a good 10 days with not one, but 2 of the fluffy buffies going broody. I've removed the golf balls they were trying to hatch from their nest boxes , but they are still in the mood. I've plopped them outside repeatedly, but they keep returning to their nestboxes. Question is - how long will it take for them to have a change in mood - especially if I just leave them be? I've got to say that they are just about the funniest things I've ever seen when they growl & puff up like a marshmallow in a microwave when you try to remove them from the nestboxes. I thought my son was going to hurl when he had to take care of their poo, too.
