My black sex link caught the broody fever two days ago. I was/am really excited and I’m going to buy eggs for her at the weekend. I do have an incubator incase she ‘un-broods’ herself. Trouble is, I have two nest boxes, a 3ft one and a normal one, this is because whoever made the nest boxes put them too high and I couldn’t reach anything from the other boxes, so they all use the normal one near the doors. Even though everyone has been laying eggs on top of her, she’s stuck on them like a champ. I think she’s going to be a good broody too as she takes herself out twice a day and isn’t making herself sick. Anyway, I need to move her if she’s going to hatch chicks as I don’t want the other hens standing on and messing about with the eggs. I tried moving her to the other box but she just moves back. Also, the coop floor is mesh and is not OK for chicks to walking on (this is temporary but will be like this for a couple of months). So I set a prefab coop up and shoved her in there this morning, but she doesn’t like it. She just stands at the door clucking. I could try and move her at night but when she realises in the morning, won’t she notice? I contemplated making the long nest box into a broody box but it’s too hard to get to and clean. Does anyone have any advice on what to do and how to do it? It’d be really appreciated. Thanks!
