    She is 1 year old and I can't get her out of the box. It's been about three weeks which ought to be enough already! Do I need to be overly concerned?

    I had a silkie Cross go broody for nearly 4.5 months... [​IMG] I had no room for chicks then.

    I've got a Production Red trying to go broody right now. She even encourages the other hens to lay in her nest, then sits the eggs after they leave. It's a hoot watching her coo and cluck like a rooster showing everyone a nice nest spot. She sits all day, then gives up in the evening [​IMG]

    I don't think she has it down though. she doesn't seem interested in spending the night on the nest.
