Can a hen go broody without eggs? She lays regularly and I remove them regularly (just about the same time every day). Then all the sudden she refuses to get out of the nesting box. I take her out...she goes back in. I take her out again, she goes right back in. It's been seven days now with no egg and her eating has slowed way down...sounds like she's broody but can they go broody even if the eggs are taken out quickly?
