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.
