In the Brooder
- Feb 19, 2013
I have a hen who is such a troublemaker. She was recently broody, probably a month ago. Now she is sleeping in the nesting box. She poops in there too, my eggs are getting really nasty! She is not in there during the day, she is definitely not broody anymore (besides she doesn't poop in there when she's broody), and she is also molting. She is the lowest in the pecking order, do you think she's getting kicked off the roost at night? Not sure what to do. Husband wants to eat her for dinner, since she's gone broody twice in 6 months and is now pooping on our eggs. Any ideas?
