Hi - I just joined. I have 2 blue-laced wyandottes, a red sex-link, a buff orpington, a light sussex, and a swedish flower hen. It's been all fun & fresh eggs until recently. One of my wyandottes is broody. Since we aren't allowed roosters here in Oakland, I ordered some fertile eggs by mail for her to sit on. Recently she's started going nuts whenever I put fresh food/water in the cage, flinging bedding all about, burying the food and water, and damaging her eggs. Now there are only 4 left out of a clutch of 7. Is she nuts? I'm being as unobtrusive as I can be. I'm not sure what to do to keep her calm. Any suggestions would be welcome.
