    Hi my bantam has been sitting in a broody buster for three days now and I was wondering when can I free her?

    usually they let you know they are through being broody because they get restless and want out, or they might even lay an egg. Chances are if she is still sitting in there quetly after 3 days, the cage is not going to break the broodiness.
