A have a broody hen that I have seperated from the flock. She is in a 3'x4' house with wire caged bottom. How long is it going to take to bust her broodiness. She has been in there 2 full days. Last night I let her out to free range with the other ladies and she joined the group. This is a step in the right direction - last week before I sperated her, when I would let ther girls out to free range, she wouldn't go far from the coop and would squak and get a fluffed up wanting to back in. When it was time to go back in for the evening, since her behavior was different, I let her back in the coop and she went right up to the nest. So back she went into the broody buster.
