Ok, maybe it's my bad. I chose the NH because they sometimes will go broody, and I want that eventually. Of course, Mrs. Batty is broody now . . . which is weird because there's no roo around! I let her sit in the box until afternoon, then put her in the 10x10 pen outdoors so she can get water and food. She doesn't leave the box, otherwise. Is this the thing to do? I don't want to discourage her, because I would like to hatch eggs in the spring, but that's a long way away and she's stopped laying. What to do? She climbs into whichever box has the most eggs/golfballs and sits on them!
