I have a buff orprington that just turned 1 year old last week. She went broody in January, then again on April 1st, and now today. The first two times, I separated her and put her in a cage with a wire bottom for three days and she got over it. But, it has happened again today. We live in the city and can't have any more than 4 chickens (which is what we have now), so I don't want to give her fertilized eggs to hatch. I also don't really have room to separate her constantly (once in a while it will be fine, but not on a monthly basis). Is this normal to go broody this often?? Will it continue to be like this? I have someone that is willing to take her but my kids are so sad to be giving her away since this was our first year raising chickens. Any thoughts?
