In the Brooder
- Oct 10, 2017
We have a Whiting True Blue, about 1.5yo, and has been brooding or trying to brood for 3 months now. We've just about given up because we work full time. We've blocked her in various ways from getting in the coop for a month now, but as soon as we open up, she bolts in. Blocking her favorite nest box has no effect. She's lost a lot of weight (we give her ample food opportunities, but doesn't eat much). We don't have a rooster: this hen sits on nothing, or others' eggs, all day if allowed. Any ideas would be very appreciated!
