I have two RI Red hens that have gone broody. It's our fault, we didn't collect the eggs for a few days. We've been diligent since then and had noticed them in the laying boxes only a few times, but each time they were laying on eggs, until tonight. They weren't sitting on eggs. I've also noticed that we have declined from 5-6 eggs a day to 3-4, I believe that these hens have stopped laying.
Does this sound correct? If the hens are broody, and not laying, how should I un-broody them, and will it start their egg production up again before 1-2 months?
Thanks for your help.
