I think my girls have decided to get broody at the same time My little white cochin hasn't moved from the nest in about 2 days (although I've picked her up, & taken the egg she lays, leaving her with the golfball. This normally wouldn't be a problem, except that now my three other girls lay their eggs in different places, and unfortunately, its not the same place. Instead of one nest to check, I now have three. My Polish was sitting on her egg & the wydonnette's egg last night. That was fun, because the wydonnette wanted to sleep on her egg, and the Polish wouldn't budge off of the two eggs. How long with this broodiness last? Is there any way to "unbroody" my cochin? I don't think she's got the body mass to sit on the nest & not eat since she's on the bottom of the pecking order and doesn't get much food to begin with. (The other girls actually attacked here last week while she was sitting on the nest.) I hate the idea of locking them out of the coop, since I think she'll just find a new nest, along with the other girls, and it's been rather nice to not have to hunt for eggs Any other ideas or suggestions?
