In the Brooder
- Apr 13, 2011
I have five hens and for the past several months have averaged 2 to 3 eggs a day. A few days ago, one hen went broody. Since then, I have been getting 4 eggs a day. There is only one nesting box, so two cram in there when it's time to lay. No rooster. Does a broody hen prompt egg laying by the others or is that just a coincidence?
