Greetings knowledgable mamas,
I think one of my three hens is broody (or brooding, I don't know the correct terminology). She is a one year old buff orpington. Anyway, she is hunkered down in the corner of the coop where they normally lay (they always lay in this corner, never in the boxes). She won't move out of that spot. I have moved her a couple times much to her dismay. Even when I left the front door open to let them free range which they love, she stayed behind. She also isn't going into the run to eat her favorite treats.
The other two haven't layed in a couple of days. This is no skin off my back as I don't sell the eggs or anything and we have plenty for the family. Is this uncomfortable for them? Those two seem perfectly happy.
How long will this last? Should I keep on moving her even though she just goes back?
I understand that she thinks she is hatching an egg into a chick (we have no roosters), I'd just love some advice.
