I live in Michigan...the snow cometh..and takes its time going away. I dont expect to see the end of winter until late April/May. I went to collect my eggs today, and I have a buff orp who has been laying for only about 2 weeks. Maybe three, if we stretch it. Well, she is camped out on the eggs. I have given her HOURS to lay her egg and get out of the hen house, but she is still in there. Whenever a hen sticks her head in there to see what is up, this buff starts complaining LOUDLY but isnt budging. How will I know if she has gone broody? If she is still there tomorrow? If so, what then?
