I need suggestions on breaking broody behavior. My Cuckoo Maran has gone broody AGAIN, that's twice in 3 months! Last time I repeatedly and several times a day; physically removed her from the lay box everyday.. over and over and over again... for a period of about 6 weeks! I do NOT want to do that this time! SO, I have slipped 3 golf balls under her and remove the eggs from the other girls daily. I just let her sit in there day after day and have resigned myself to just let her be with her golf balls! However, my husband suggested something a little different. He proposed that I should go buy a baby chick at the feed store and slip the baby under her .. and remove the golf balls. Do you think this would work? Has anyone tried this? I don't want 3 more chicks to equal the 3 golf balls, but could do one more... IF, you all think this may work.
