We are certainly city chicken farmers. For over a week, our buff was sitting longer and longer on the nest, and we simply thought she was just a bit of a slower layer. Finally it dawned on us that we have a broody chicken on our hands. So, yesterday we tried cooling her off in a tub of water, and letting her sleep outside the nest. This morning we let her back in and she walked right back in and sat on the nest.
Any ideas? We're considering the ice cube trick next.
Or, does anyone need to incubate eggs by chance? She's a great brooder!
Thanks for any suggestions...
