My daughter has a standard Blue Cochin who has been broody since late April, and we've tried every trick we know of to break her of the habit. Now, she's developed a bad case of bird lice. We tried bathing her today in soapy water, but that didn't do much. We're completely frustrated with her. We ran out of the food grade DE weeks ago and have been waiting for a mail order for weeks (I'm not sure it was working that great anyway)! We do eat the eggs of the EEs that share the coop with her, so we're too afraid to use something that might be dangerous. What really works??!!
