Hi Guys, I know there is a lot of material on the site regarding broody hens and breaking them however I wanted some advise on my situation and what you would do. I have a silkie hen who went broody about 7 weeks ago. I removed any eggs from the coop daily and have been removing her from the nest box each day to make sure she gets out to eat and drink but she rushes back in after a couple of minutes and gets straight back into the nest box. I was hoping she would end the broodyness on her own accord after about 3 weeks but she has her own ideas on that and will not break on her own. I have read a few articles on breaking broody hens and most recommend a wire cage however my coop is only small and I can't fit wire cage in it. Also it's winter here and I don't want to leave her outdoors over night in cage as I don't think it would be very comfortable for her. I've tried to lock her out the coop in the day but she gets really antsy and frustrated and ends up getting really aggressive and attacking the others birds so I relent and let her in. I'm worried that she is putting alot of pressure and strain on her body with the broodyness and would like to get her out of it. Do you think it is safe to continue letting her get on with it and hope she comes out of it on her own eventually ? If not what method would you suggest for trying to get her out of this mindset?
