After removing an egg a day because we didn't intend to have chicks and trying to break her out of her broodiness, our Australorp is still determined to hatch some babies. The other three hens are not laying at all an now Ebony is only sitting on one egg. We have decided to let her hatch her own chicks and tried to move her and her egg to the nest box in the outside coop as it is beginning to get really hot (30+ degrees C) and the outdoor coop has more fresh air. Once moved she did not sit on her egg and just waited at the door. When I opened the door she ran straight back into the other coop and sat on her empty nest. I gave her back her egg and now she is happy. Also there seems to have been a new egg each morning though I don't know who is laying. So I just want to know why the others aren't laying any eggs and what to do.
