    My Bantam Cochin likes to lay eggs and then hang out in the coop. If I kick her out she's fine and doesn't go running back in the coop to sit on eggs but she needs to be encouraged to leave. If she doesn't have to lay an egg she doesn't go into the coop and sit on anyone else's eggs. Laying her own triggers this behavior. Anything I can do about this?
