Our poor Bronwen (EE) is broody and I think she may have been lured into it by Mae (a BO). We don't have any roosters and I'm not allowed to get/make/raise any chickies so is there a nice way to help them? Should I just leave them alone and be pecked every time I get eggs? Bronwen has stopped laying and Mae is still laying. Should I take out the golf balls? Hubby thinks we should leave them in there, but with 5-8 eggs a day I think that our one pullet who isn't laying yet would get the idea of where to lay just by seeing the other real eggs. I don't want to put them in a separate cage with a wire bottom or something, these are my pets and our coop dynamics are wonderful right now - I don't want to mess that up.
