We tried breaking her of the broodiness by putting her in a pet carrier with food/water for two days. My ds11 then let her out in the chicken yard. With-in three hours she was back in her nest. She hasn't been producing eggs for about a week. From the look of her comb, she isn't drinking/eating like she should. What's the next step? Do we make her in to stew? I've never killed a chicken before, I have a basic idea, but still... Thoughts? PS-We have no rooster either...with no plans for one.
