I've been dealing with a broody hen for about 3 weeks and I finally have the time to do something about it. I'm following the advice on the broody breaker cage. I used leftover material from the coop to build a cage into the corner of the coop. The broody was p*&^ed after I put her in. She didn't know what to think of the cage and she was squawking at me. She's got food and water but nothing else. Hopefully she'll break sooner than later.

Oh Good Luck, looks a great set up, I gave into mine and gave her a fertitized egg - new chick today! But I like your design, and will attempt a replica for next time this happens. Would love to know if yu are successful, and how long it takes.

I returned the broody hen to the flock 7 days later. I didn't get an egg from her while she was in the cage but in the 24 hours since her return, she hasn't gone broody again. Good news. Now, lay an egg.
