    My hen, one of them, I only have 2, and l is brooding. I understand the brooding hen will not lay eggs while brooding, but what about the hen, that i sanot brooding, i do not think she is though. She has not laid nay eggs eithert, but thery do take turns so maybe she still will in a few days, if not, what does that mean? Tomorrow I am going to give them dustbaths in sand.
