My eight and a half month old Buff Orpington broody announced Tuesday that she is ready to brood her second batch of chicks. She successfully brooded three chicks three months ago -- was a pretty good mother, in fact, especially given the fact that she did not have a nest mother herself. So Wednesday night, my wife and I kidnapped her from her retreat in the henhouse to bring her to the more protective environment in our spare bedroom. She has everything she needs: a warm protected environment, plenty of food and water, a comfy nest, and a bunch of eggs that she and her fellow hen roommates laid in the three days right before the kidnapping. We turn the light on for about 14 hours and turn it off for the other 10 hours, which is the same light schedule she had when she lived in the big henhouse. But we've also put a cloth on top of her dog cage, so that the light is muted and not glaring directly on her. We've tried to create the ideal brooding environment for her. The problem is that she does not seem to be eating, or drinking, or pooping. Her food is chicken starter crumbles, since she does not need extra calcium right now. My wife got to thinking that she might respond better to scrambled eggs, so she scrambled one this afternoon, and yes, the little girl did eat some of that egg. But it was only one egg, and she ate only half of it -- and would not even eat a bite until my wife put the egg right next to her, where she would not have to get off her clutch. We still do not know if she has drank a thing, and we KNOW she has not pooped. And best we can ascertain, the only thing she has eaten in three days is about half of a single scrambled egg. What can we do to help her?
