    Hello Bert [​IMG] That is very true. In my grandchildrens case, they have a push over mom and have no idea how strong women can be and have no respect for them. I am here to change their way of thinking . [​IMG]

    Red, she shouldn't want to do much other than hop off to poop, grab a quick bite, and hop back on. Chicken eggs don't need a "cool down" the way that duck eggs do.

    Red... I want one of my hens to go broody. I would keep her in the crate with water and food and not give her the opportunity to change her mind. She will be fine. She is young yet... Encouragement to stay setting is good.

    [​IMG] Have you told them that ?? It means a lot. even coming from you and not my DD. thank you. My SIL is teaching them from the 1930s or so. women barefoot and preg. in the kitchen is where they belong and they shouldnt vote or have an opinion . very sad to me. the 16 yr. old has more pull in the house and decisions then mom does. she goes along with this. no respect at all. I teach them respect with opening doors and such for woman but I focus more on what I do and that is running the house , making the decisions ,even weilding the hammer to fix things and that is something he dont do so they are impressed. I dont mean to interfer with how people raise their kids. I just intend to show them a different way of life.

    Ok. Thanks . I made her get up yesterday. She did stay out 30 minutes I'm guessing. Maybe not that long. I was scared she wouldn't get up to poop and eat if I didn't make her. Her poop was as big as my big dogs poop. I know that's normal when broody. Will most get up by themselves? Hope I didn't screw up by making her get up. I haven't seen her off of them any until I made her get up.

    I have told my folks that... But the best thank you to them was me pulling myself self off my pity party and focusing on making the right changes.. Wasn't easy and I wouldn't have come this far without them.
