So I moved into a new house and the previous owner left 7 hens and a rooster behind. Well 3 out of the 4 hens are very broody, what a bunch of little snots. 4 I can go and get the eggs from (all frizzles) with no issues, the other 3 is more like ya right. The cochin is the meanest and she bites so I haven't even tried to mess with her, yes I did get pecked in the first attempt. After speaking with a few people I know they all suggested that the 3 who are mean and wont come out are all laying on eggs that should be ready to hatch soon. We moved in on 6/3/16 and didn't find the chickens until 6/11/16, in that time they are being fed now and watered properly. I now need to clean out the coop since there is a very nasty smell coming from under one of my hens and there is a trail of ants as well going to that box. My concern is that all 3 of these hens are sitting on ticking time bombs. what should I do?
