Well somehow I have 5 broody hens sitting on everything they can get. Its been this way for a couple of months. I don't know how old each egg is because the other hens keep laying new ones. I am getting at least a chick or two every day.
The three on the right are Broody,
I got a couple of them to get down for some scratch.
These are two other broody nest
If this has been going on 'a couple of months' and you have gotten chicks then why not let the hens raise them so they get off of the nests? I don't understand what you are doing with the hatched chicks or why have you not marked the eggs so you can pull newly laid eggs each day so the hens can complete their brood.
The normal brooding cycle should involve 3-4 weeks of sitting on a clutch of eggs and then raising the chicks which hatch from that clutch, allowing them to sit for extended periods could be hard on their health.
You should mark the current eggs, candle them all and get rid of any which aren't good and separate the rest into 3 groups based on how developed they look. Give the hen who has been broody the longest the group of eggs which look the most developed, give the second longest broody the set of eggs looking the middle development stage and give the shortest term broody the least developed eggs. Let them finish sitting and hatching and raising some chicks.
