It is theoretically possible I should think.... Egg binding can be caused by inflammation or scarring of the egg duct. That could happen with over aggressive breeding if it caused vent inflammation or aggravated vent obstruction.
Yes sorry, that's what I meant

You could tie a rope to a small brick..then the other end tie it to one of his legs.. might slow him down some... I'm just kidding sound like you got your answer

Also depends on the breed you got, some will not go broody much or some will not over do it. But still after that if kept for years and inbreeding occurs, too much inline to the main mother can effect it, but that's just far down the line.
