My sweet BLR Wyandotte is about 7 1/2 months old. She has been laying ~4 a week since October. She has currently decided to park herself in the nesting box since yesterday afternoon. I managed to pry an egg (that I am fairly confident was hers) out from under her last night, but she is still there - with nothing to sit on. comb and wattles are her normal brightly colored red/pink. fluffs up and hollers upon opening of the nesting box door. not eating or drinking (that I have witnessed) no poop in the nesting box. vent is pale pink in color and not swollen. she mottled in September. we have 4 girls, no roosters since August 3 I have not given her a hot bath yet, or attempted to lube the vent. I never imagined a possibly broody girl to be so intimidating. We are clearly not friends right now, and she doesn't want me touch her at all. I didn't THINK (per my previous readings) that I any of my girls would be broody because their breed wasn't inclined to do so. Hope you are all having a better Thanksgiving than my Millie!
