i have had chickens for a year now...i have a gold laced wyandotte that is broody!...i have NO roosters...i collect eggs soon as they are laid.....so she is sitting there for hours on nothing!!...first i thought she was just talking a long time to lay an egg...now i know she is broody....i have pulled her out of the lay box all day.....cooled her in a bucket of water...closed the coop door.....she just broke through the door and managed to get back in!...what do i do with her...she si so determined to get back and sit in that empty box...should i keep trying to keep her out??..or should i get her some fertilized eggs to hatch???...i feel so bad for her...and i am afraid she will hurt herself!...please help!!!...thanks!
