I've got a BO that has gone broody. For petes sake it's Dec. and there is snow! I thought she was, so I've been moving her out of the nest 3 days in a row. Today I noticed she's plucked her stomach bald. I know that's part of broodiness but I'm not set up for a broody and chicks. I can't move her cuz there is not where to put her til she snaps out of it. She' s not laying and I took three eggs from her yesterday. Today she was sitting on a wooden egg. I moved her out of the nest but I just know she'll be back there when I go out later. Should I just keep moving her? How long do I keep doing that until one of us gives in? I'm glad she'll go broody but why now? I absolutely love chickens and I'm sure I'd have no problem getting rid of the chicks. Heck I had a friend say to me at church just last night that he has got to get him some Delawares. (Hear that speckledhen?). I have some CM eggs that I'm sure would be CM's but not so sure of the Delawares as there are other hen breeds w/ them. Roo is a Del. and got 7 Del. hens. Did I mention I absolutely love chickens? Why now and what should I do? It's winter I planned on resting not building a broody box. Darn, darn, darn. If roosters hatched eggs they would never do this. Darn, darn, double darn.
