    I have five girls from spring 2010 (2 Barred Rocks, two Black Astralorpe's, 1 gold sexlink). One of the Blacks and Goldie went broody about a month ago. Since we were on vacation, I let them be. When we got back, a local chicken guy suggested isolating them for 72 hours. Well, they've stopped being broody, but I'm pretty much not getting eggs from anyone, and haven't since this broodiness started. I'm getting one egg from the other Black each day since I released the two from isolation, but the other 4 haven't started laying again yet. Should I do anything? If so, WHAT? I'm at my wits' end!
