I everyone! Just joined the site to get some questions answered. Thanks in advance for your help. I have a free range chicken that lays eggs. In the past, we could not find the eggs until she went into brooding and then found the bunch. She is laying eggs again! Do I take the egg and leave the empty nest or do I replace the egg with a fake one. Don't want her to brood again. Thanks

If you don't want her to go into broody mode, remove the egg(s) daily. And no fake eggs. She knows where the nest is. She will return again & again like clockwork.
