I have had my hen in the rabbit hutch for 4 days now and when I let her out to dust bath she does that and messes around but then wants to head back to the nest in the coop,so back in the hutch she goes! How long does it take to snap them out of it?
I'm not quite sure I understand correctly. Is the rabbit hutch raised off the ground? The whole idea of breaking a broody is that she gets a breeze under her butt which literally cools her off. It's not just about a change of living quarters.
Is it possible that the rabbit hutch is a little too nest box like. Does it have a dark end she can feel she is nesting in?
Oh happy day!! I think, I put my hen in with the other hens and so far so good! She has looked in where the nests are but so far hasn't went in. Hopefully she is back to normal and not broody anymore.
