I have a house chicken, a Cochin named Pepper. She was an only chick who has been a part of our family since day one. She's given me many eggs, and every last one of those eggs has been dropped in an inconvenient place: my computer chair. I work from home on my PC, specifically as an artist operating a monitor tablet at a particular angle, so being comfortable enough and high off the floor is important. I guess she decided since my butt is planted here so often, it must be a super safe amazing place to plant her own arse and whatever comes out of it. Today she decided no more eggs. It is time to hunker down and screech like she's returning to her saurian roots until babies happen. I do not want to break her of her broodiness! I have 18 eggs coming in the mail tomorrow, and my incubator can only fit 12, so her going broody today is kind of a happy accident. It saves me having to start up my crappy homemade 'bator for the excess right away, and I can find out if she will stay on the nest without buying eggs special. I have removed her several times to other nesting options and kept the chair firmly unavailable. All are abandoned right away in favor of circling the chair waiting for me to get up. I planned to ignore her until she picked another place, but as the day has gone on, she has gone from obnoxious to violent and is super distressed. I've never seen her so upset. She REALLY wants chair babies! I have pretty much two options: Surrender my chair, or coop her up. I will try setting her up in a kennel with what she needs and a not-so-chair nest and give her a day or two to see if she calms down. Otherwise, I'll just admit defeat and give her the chair- her happiness is important to me. What are your broodyzilla stories?
