Hello all! We are new to having chickens. We were given twenty-one hens and a roo, and we just love them! Early in March, one hen became broody, so we moved her from the coop to our shed where she was set up in a nice box with wood shavings under her. She did great, and hatched out 4 babies about three weeks ago. We have since built her a new tractor for her and her babies. Now, the problem: We have another hen that's broody. She's been moving back and forth from the nesting boxes (when she gets kicked out for another hen to lay) for about four days now. One night last week, we moved her into the shed, into the box the previous broody hen had occupied. We cleaned it out well, and added all new shavings, but boy, was she MAD. Wouldn't set on the eggs for anything. After about 24 hours of trying to get her comfortable, we finally just took her back to the coop with the others. She ran right in and hopped up on her "favorite nest"! Of course, we had already moved all of the eggs -- but there she sat. My question -- why didn't she like the broody nest we had for her, and how can we get her to set where we want her too? I'm afraid the eggs won't hatch if we keep her in the coop with the rest of the girls. Any advice? Thanks in advance!
