I need help I have a hen that is stealing all the eggs laid in the coop and is sitting on them. How can I change this unwanted behavior?

Thanks. Yes I thought it was called being broody. However I never thought she would put that many eggs under her. I don't mind if she hatches a few but she now has about 20 eggs under her. Also how can I get them to use their chicken house? They always stay in the run. Getting them into the chicken coop is impossible. I tried to put them in the house part of the coop and they freaked out and jumped out the door. So I can't use the traditional removing her from the nesting box ect. However I need to figure out how to keep her from putting any more eggs under her. Any suggestions since she is in with other hens and a rooster? I would still like to collect the others eggs. Or is that impossible? Also do you think all of those eggs will hatch? Yikes. lol I didn't really want all those chicks but I feel bad killing the embryos. Hopefully I can find homes for them. I give them to good homes if I can find some. Then the broody must be stopped lol. Thank you for your article it helped. :/)Well she's being broody so I would try to break that cycle. Hope this site helps!
