    I have a buff Orpington hen who has been broody for a couple days. Great! I love watching mama hens raise babies! Problem is, she can't seem to decide which nest to sit on. She is swapping constantly. I've started collecting more regularly from the other nests so there aren't any eggs to tempt her. Has anyone else had this problem? What did you do? I'm worried that she will be successful and hatch babies, but not be a faithful mama. Anyone have experience with this type of situation?
