    my young hen has just decided to sit and be "broody". I have taken any eggs away from under her, that others have laid. I have also picked her up and put her into the run. She eats the corn scratch and then after a short time goes back into one specific nest. There are NO eggs there and she just wants to sit. How can I stop this?
