My hen (pictured to the left) Churkey, seems to go broody every other month. I have to remove her from the coop until she's broken from it and I lose a week or two of egg production each time. I know many of you would kill for a broody so I won't complain but I have a few questions. Do some breeds just go broody much easier than others? Is my chicken one of those breeds (I really don't know exactly what breed she is. I'm assuming she's a Delaware mix)? Is there any way to stem the inherent broodiness in a chicken? Would letting her raise a clutch of eggs make her more apt to go broody in the future or less?
