Since my chickens have started laying, i have rarely been without a broody. But usually i let them set and raise their chicks. This time, i've sold the chicks. I just took away one and two day old chicks from my broody mama (it was kind of stressful and emotional) for my husband to deliver them to the buyer. Now she's outside clucking around and all puffed up but with no one following her. Will she go back to producing? I always assumed she would, but then now i just wonder. What should i expect? She's not going to jump back into the nest box to brood again, is she?
