I have a Barred Rock hen, who is broody. She is on her third day and keeps switching nests. She has a calendar in her nesting box and a painting. Can I make her more comfortable, I put fresh hay in her nesting box. What else can I do. It is her 4th time being broody. Please help!

I don't let some of my hens ever have eggs, they can't ever remember what nest they were on.
If you really want her to be broody she's going to need her own pen/cage with food, water, dust bath and 1 nest area.
