I have a hen that went broody and hatched a bunch of eggs. She's a BO and the eggs were misc. bantams that were donated. I sold four chicks at 2 weeks old, then gave another four to a friend at 7 weeks. Now, there is one chick left, at 9 weeks old, and it is still sleeping in the BO's fluff up in the roost at night and still follows her around all day. The BO isn't quite as interested in mothering the chick as she had been, but she's still pretty much at it, doing that weird upright walk and clicking the chick towards food. My question is, how long after kicking the chick out will it be until the broody returns to normal? She's started to molt so she still isn't laying eggs again. Her comb is still pale and she still has that worn out look and the broody "crazy eyes". Should I expect her to be this way for much longer?
