Hi! I'm hoping someone could help us! We have an allotment in the north east of England and have some chickens. One of our chickens went broody about 2 weeks ago. As soon as we noticed we kept taking her off the nest for two days but that didn't work so out came the broody box! We let her out every night for a stretch and some food but she kept going straight back to the nest until Saturday. On Saturday we let her out and she wondered around for 5 or 6 hours so we left her out that night, only to come back on Sunday and she was back on the nest! Since then, when we have been going to feed the chickens she is in the broody box but is pacing back and forth rather then 'nesting' but again keeps going back to her nesting spot. Does anyone have any other advise on what we can do? I don't want her to sit much longer because it's so cold and she's losing weight. We would be happy to give her some chicks but we are going on holiday over Christmas and a relative is looking after the chickens for us so we don't want them to have the added responsibility of a new chicken mum and babies in the middle of winter. Thanks.
