I have one of my BR hens starting to go broody on me. I collect eggs everyday at the same time, so there are no eggs for her to set on. How do I convince her that she doesn't need to set. Now I have another hen starting grrr


what can be done? She was a good layer and now she has none

I had the same problem last week. My girl went broody on me and she found herself in lockdown.....


Put her is a cage, I use a dog crate , and in 3-5 days she should be broken. This worked for me.
Hope this is some help.

I'd let her sit, honestly,

we had a hen who went broody, didn't hatch anything, got off being broody for about a week, then was RIGHT back where she started LOL, this same hen will hopefully be hatching out atleast 10 chicks in 9 days!


they can be VERY determined
