Chicken went broody now all the others are attacking her.


In the Brooder
Aug 27, 2019
Hi. I have a chicken who never got picked on/bullied but she has been broody for about a week now and suddenly most of our other 7 chickens are being very aggressive towards her and attacking her when I bring out of the nesting box to eat. I’ve been having to keep her in a kennel by herself.
Has this happened to anyone before. She has NEVER been bullied before until she went broody. What the heck is going on!?!
That's pretty normal. Broody hens are disruptive and are often chased and occasionally get into scuffles with other hens. It's one of the many reasons it's best to break broody hens ASAP if you don't plan to use them.
Yes, this^^^...break her or set her up to hatch in a part of coop sectioned off by wire.
