    I have a Buff Orpington hen who has gone broody for over 2 months. She will not leave the nest. I take her out several times a day and put her outside and as soon as I turn around she is back in the nest. Will she ever get past this? She is making the other hens crazy cause they want to use that nest too.

    You would need to stop her from being able to access the nest for at least a day, or you could give her some eggs to hatch.
