I have a funny situation: a broody hen who is still laying an egg a day. After a few days of her monopolizing the nesting box and a night of sleeping in it, I finally put her in a wire dog kennel up on big planter pots. She has nowhere to nest, but laid an egg anyway this morning and it broke (don't know how) and fell through the cage on to the ground. I think my kittens ate it. Before putting her in the kennel, I knew she was still laying and would have to reach under her to get the egg each day. Since I can't put any nest into the kennel (would defeat the purpose), do I just have to lose the egg each day? I was going to keep her there for 3 days, but since she's still laying, should I try letting her out earlier?
