    My Buff Orp. went broody last may and we indulged her by putting some fertilized eggs under her (we don't have a rooster). Now shes doing it again and we don't want any chicks. How can we stop this behavior?

    Just go buy a couple of chicks and let her raise them. They make such good mamas.

    Then you can sell or give away the chicks when they get older.
