How do I get her to go broody in a nest box. She has all the signs of broody, puffy when sitting, cackles when off the roost, missing feathers on her belly areas.... pecks me when i try to push her off the roost..

The Question is how do I get her to go broody in a nest? I have eggs I can give her. I even made more nest boxes for her. I picked her up and put her in a nest, but she didn't care for it. So what gives? Let her be, or? Anyone have this problem?

Maybe you can set her up with a nest with some fake eggs or even a couple of golf balls might work. If she sets on them, you might want to try real eggs. Just a thought!
