I found one of my hens on a pile of eggs in a secret nest, I didn't even know she had began laying.. well.. I went to remove her and pick up the eggs and my rooster was having none of it, he's never been aggressive with me but he charged me, I kicked him, not too hard I didn't hurt him but just enough to get him away from my body, he charged back and I did it again and then I took off running into the house. Bad idea messing with his hen's eggs I learned. We've since been back to normal, gave him treats and he wasn't aggressive. My question is: what do I do about breaking a broody hen? I didn't even know she was laying eggs yet, shes 5 months, let alone had a secret stash of 15 eggs. Is it dangerous to the hen to forcefully remove her off an egg pile? Is there better ways to go about it? Thanks.
