Broody chicken problem

Recommended Posts

You need to ‘separate’ the broody from the rest. Some put a broody chicken in a wire cage (wire bottom too, propped up on bricks) for 3 days and nights. Make sure you keep the broody in sight of the others, preferably place the wire cage in the run with the others.

I split my run in two and put the brooding in the side without access to the house during the day. I put her back at night with the others. Takes much longer to break the broodiness, but my broody can be loud and I have many neighbours close by.
