So Ive read all through the broody posts and couldnt find the answer to my question. So I ask for advise from you all in chickenland. I have a broody buff orp. She's been busy trying to hatch non-fertilized eggs for about a week now and Im concerned not so much for her but for the other chickens. I have 5 hens and they all lay in the same nest (the only one I have). Every morning i push her out of the nest with fear for my life (and hands) because she is really mean, but she always goes back the rest of the day and sleeps in there at night. Should I just leave here alone and let the others fend for themselves or what? I have a smaller pen that I kept the chicks in for a while when we were introducing small chicks with big hens, should i put her in there untill she's over it? I just feel like the other 4 hens cant get in to lay eggs with her fat butt sitting in there all day.
