i have a wood dummy in the nest. remove her egg every day. (no other hens are laying yet). she's been laying for about a month. today she refuses to leave the nest. i went under her and pulled out her one egg. she's still sitting on the dummy. went i get near her she "fluffs and growls" at me. questions.. is she broody? if she's broody, will she still lay? if she won't keep laying, how do i stop the broodiness? if she will keep laying, what should i do? i'm sure she'll hatch them herself. i have the lamps and brooders for when they hatch. it's august here. another month or two of hot weather. should i force her to stop the brooding? will it hurt/help? my standards are due to lay any day, so i don't really need the eggs. babies might be fun. the roo is a standard cuckoo maran. thanks!
