It's starting to be the rainy season, and of COURSE I have a stubborn setting (copper Maran?) hen who insists on staying on her nest--out in the rain, the idiot! Last night I forcibly moved her and her three eggs (that aren't hers, because hers rotted underneath her, totally disgusting) into a sheltered area and I'm just praying she stays put. She was literally sopping wet at that point. So now that I have a totally wet hen in windy weather, what do I watch for healthwise and how can I break her set? I tried a bare cage for three days as I was told by another owner, and nothing...I turned her loose and back she went to that same, stinking, empty nest. (It REEKED!!! Even after I hosed out all the dead eggs and detritus.) So she's a determined broad. I gave her three banty orpington eggs which also got wet last night, but that's not the issue--the little orp hen is setting over a DOZEN and losing three won't kill me. I'm just worried about my insane (mad), wet hen.
