Seems there are suddenly lots of posts about chickens going broody--guess spring is in the air! My BO has been broody for a week now- and not a rooster in sight! The e-investagating Ive done says they are hardwired to be broody for 21 days- the length of time for chicks to hatch. My girl allows me to pick her up and move her- but she heads right back to the nest. And when thrown out into the yard she will roam for about an hour before heading back. Has anyone had success w/ the dunking their behinds into a bucket of water to break them? Or Ice cubes in the nest?
