So, I have decided I would rather break my broody than give her chicks. I don't have the wire floored cage to put her in but since I only have 2 chickens and my broody hen is our only layer I am looking for a way to break her without separating her. My daughter read about ice cubes but that sounds terrible. I was wondering if on that same vein... can I put freezer blocks under the straw in the nesting boxes. They might get a little damp but shouldn't make a soggy mess and I could put one in all the nesting boxes to keep them cool. Do you think this might help or should I just wait out the 3 weeks?
