I collect eggs daily but want broody hens for the spring. I have been collecting the eggs from my 2 Cochins and 3 red sex links. ( there are also one barred rock rooster and 4 Guineas in the coop.) this is my first year with chickens and I get 3 eggs a day. I was wondering if by collecting the eggs daily I am going to cause a lack of broodiness? I would like to try for hatching some chicks naturally this spring but I wasn't sure if a hen will become broody. Do I just leave the eggs when I'm ready for this to happen and maybe it will spark interest in one to become broody? Should I start leaving eggs now once in awhile or is it ok to take all eggs daily? I'd like to try for hatching late spring. Thanks so much for any help!
