    I am a first timer. I have an easter egger that has gone broody. I have a dog crate that I made into a broody breaker. I live in Wisconsin and being November, it's pretty chilly. The crate won't fit in the coop and the part of the run that it will fit in is not covered. Can I bring her inside to break the broody or does she need to be with the others?

    Hi, welcome to BYC!

    I'd hate to leave a bird outside in the weather we are having right now. I'd personally bring her in if I didn't have a choice. Hopefully you can break her in a few days. I use a rabbit cage so it fits in my coop. I bought it at TSC.

    Thanks, I really didn't want to leave her outside. i guess I just needed to get a second opinion.
