Is it true that a hen of laying age that is being mounted regularly by a roo, will go broody if her nest is allowed to fill with eggs? I've been told this is the case by a few locals but locals here also use moon cycles for gardening, so everything they say goes with a grain of salt. Also, right now my entire flock has taken to laying in the exact same spot in the new henhouse, and often when they have to lay at the same time there is chaos. The sitting hen will start clucking and the other hell will go mad at the sight of the laying chicken sitting on her eggs. 1: what if anything can be done about the current laying situation without dispursing the chickens back around the yard? 2: Does anyone know what would happen if one bird took to hen-q-bating on the eggs layed by the entire flock? would the other hens allow it? would they seek to start a new nest elsewhere?
