I have two hens that have gotten broody in the past week. We decided to let them hatch some eggs and see what happens. We marked the eggs with a sharpy (not picking them up). but they are in the same box that all my girls lay in and they are extrememly aggressive when we collect the other eggs. Anyone got suggestions on another way of doing this?

I wear gloves, pick up the hen take the eggs I want and put her back. You may want to try this in the later afternoon when they have "gone to bed" so to speak and then remove the eggs you want. They are less inclined to be cranky if they have shut down for the night.
