I left my house for 12 hours yesterday. I get back and I am missing three chickens. I thought I lost them but I had a feeling... went to the coop and THREE OF THEM ARE BROODY!!! My best layer, my RIR Alabama is broody. And two of my silverlaced wyandottes. One of them has been broody for weeks. I toss them out, I lock the coop, I do the cold water dunk... nothing. The RIR I locked out of the coop today but apparently she wasn't entirely broody yet because she laid an egg on the ground. I felt bad about that But I'm really at the end of my rope. I'm half tempted to just let the one broody starve herself. Like fine, you haven't had sex since we got rid of our fullgrown roo, you're sitting on imaginary eggs... but you go ahead, bite me and ruffle yourself up, I don't care.
