I've had one broody hen (Dottie Delaware) for a couple of weeks, and now Juney Java is broody as well and they sit on each other in one of the nesting boxes (Juney is HUGE and Dottie is not small). They don't much like it when I force them out but we've no rooster and we sell the eggs so was hoping they'd give up if I annoyed them enough. Egg production is down - was getting 6-8/day from 8 hens all winter (they are just now 1.5 years old) and now 2-4 eggs/day - I've only got the two nesting boxes and don't know if they chase the other hens out. They free range + crumble and sratch mix. Putting fertile eggs under them is not an option - any other ideas? Will they ever stop this behavior?
