    i blocked off all the nest boxes.. hopefully that will work. its been almost 3 weeks. I kick her out and she seems to except her fate by eatting and drinking but then she wants back in. She isnt even setting on eggs XD

    Aggravating isnt it? I just got through breaking a stubborn broody. The only thing that worked for me was seperating her and putting her all alone in a cage with feed and water for 4 days. It worked! That was my first experience too, so I dont know if that'll work for you or not, but good luck!​
