    Well I built a broody area for my broody hen. She is now isolated and has a nest, food, and water. It has a wire floor so when she goes poop it falls to the ground. Anyways, I moved her this afternoon. I know you most say move her at night. I put a black sock on her head and moved her to the new area. She seems a little ****** off right now. lol Is there anything I can to do make her happy again? Will she start sitting on the eggs anytime soon?Also, Every time I go out there she goes crazy.
