Hi. I have an Araucana who is 18 months old. She lost her best friend last year (to old age), and went broody not long after. I tried her with fertile eggs, which I think she overheated (they didn't hatch), so I bought her 8 one-day-old purebred chicks, which she loved. She was completely devoted to them for about 8-9 weeks, and then decided she was over it. They're now 13 weeks old and thriving. She has suddenly gone broody again (very stubbornly broody). Why is she doing this? She doesn't really make friends with the other hens, although they don't attack each other or anything like that. Why does she keep going broody? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
