twice this Wyandotte hen has hassled the broody to the point of getting off her eggs. the Wyandotte will then sit on the eggs for 2 to 3 hours. she then gets off & goes her merry way. meanwhile the broody sits in another nest & doesn't go back.
I gently pull her out of the second nest & put her back on her eggs.
