    She was broody for 6 days. [​IMG] Finally after moving her from the nest continually and even tried the dunk method...[​IMG] She is over being broody. So when will she lay again? She was back to normal on Sat. it's Mon eve and nothing yet.[​IMG]

    I've never broken a broody but the ones I have had usually lay after about 2-3 weeks...that is, if they don't have babies. With babies, it's longer. Hope this helps.
