one of my hens (who is still laying) wants to spend all her time in the nest box. day and night. Is there any way to curb her of this habbit. none of the other chickens can use the egg box because she is using it all day.

Supposedly- I have not tried it, if you put them in a wire cage with no bottom, then they 'cool' the broody patch down and they stop with that nonsense. Mine gave it up on her own right after I bought the cage.
