I have a BO she's about 7 mos. old, the last couple days she is acting broody! the old 2 1/2 yr. old is pecking at her while on the nest! I don't want a broody so I take the egg and remove her from the nest and put her outside. But I don't want her getting hurt by the older one(s). The broody is sometimes not eating much! so i'm trying to give her extras.... I've read other posts on how to stop broodiness but I will not hang her up or put her on ice. Anyone know if it's natural to have other hens pick on broodies?
