I know this may sound naive, but I am still new to chickens. My question is, is it so bad that a hen goes broody? I have 4 hens, no rooster. I collect eggs everyday. I have one bantam hen that became broody a few weeks ago. She will sit whether she has an egg under her or not. Do they stop laying if they become broody? They have shelter and water in there run, so I have no problems locking her out of the coop druring the day, but I'd rather not if I don't need to. If I do need to break her broodiness, how long does it usually take? Thanks!
