I have a Blue Ameraucana hen that is about 8 months old. I read that they go broody so in March—April I checked on her, she was just as normal. However in mid-May she started to go broody and from then to now (July) she has been and still is broody. Is this normal? Our hens are our pets so we don’t really care about egg production but I don’t think staying in a nesting box all day will be good for her. I’ve thought she was broody but is she sick? Any advice is appreciated!
