Hey guys, I've searched through the forum And haven't found much advice, so thought I would ask. I have a little bantam hen who is about one year and has been broody twice now. This time rather then try and break it, I thought I would let her give it a try. I purchased fertile eggs for her and she's proving herself to be a very dedicated mama by being very protective of her nest. She gets up to eat and drink, then quickly returns. She's very gentle with her eggs and I see that she moves them. That said, we are having a serious issue. Another hen of mine, an Americauna (possible mix) is being a total brat to my broody hen. Kicking her out of the nesting box, picking on her, and has broken a few of her eggs. I've moved the box multiple times to ensure it's not the box she prefers to lay in AND not in the area which she likes to lay in, yet she STILL insists on pestering my broody and breaking the eggs. Why?? I'm so annoyed by it and have no clue what to do. Do I risk moving my broody to another area to keep her and the eggs separated? Do I seperate the mean hen (who is usually very nice)? None of the other hens have gone near her or bothered her, it's just this particular one. HELP! Her broody instinct is STRONG and she's very protective of her eggs, except when it comes to the americauna.
