I have a 10 mth old hen (Dark Cornish), who has become broody. My problem is all my hens use 1 nesting box, even though I have 5. The other hens are climbing on her and smashing the eggs to get in the box. I tried moving her and the eggs to a new box last night. She was still in new box this morning but this evening she was back in the main box. So the eggs she was sitting on for 1 week were cold. So I am starting over but need help! What to do? First time with my first broody hen!!
