I have a young pullet who has decided that this artic weather is a fine time to go broody! She is tying up the one nesting box the other 4 girls want to use, there were 3 of them crowded in there this morning. ( there is another identical nest box, they just don't want to use it) on the positive side, she is keeping the eggs from freezing on the days I leave before the girls have laid. On the negative side, she is making it hard for the other hens to lay and I don't know when she goes to eat/ drink, anytime I look, she is in the nest box. Will she give up after a while when her eggs keep disappearing? I will probably let her raise some young in the spring but it is just too cold right now. I know I could probably try to "break" her but just wondering if she will give it up herself.
