It's been more than a week now - maybe even two weeks, I lose track - and one of my SFs is still sitting on the nestbox each morning when I open the coop. She sits for most of the day, doing the clucking/tossing hay around thing, and then comes out later in the afternoon to free range with the rest of her flock. She has all the signs of a broody - the puffing up, the growling, the knowing-just-where-to-land-a-bite, the stealing eggs, everything; she just doesn't sit all day. She's still roosting with the other birds at night and returns to the nest (same one each time) sometime early in the morning. I have plenty of eggs to give her and I kinda want her to go ahead and get started. How can I push her over the edge into full on broodiness? Should I go ahead and give her a clutch of eggs? I've been removing the pullet eggs from under her each day because I only want to hatch more brahmas. I've been waiting to give her a full clutch until I was sure she's serious.
