    All, I have one of the girls trying to set on the nest. I have no rooster, but she has spent the last two days on the nest coming off to eat and then right back on the nest. I take the eggs from under her, because it would do no good for her to set. How do I break her from setting or do I let her go through her motherly cycle?

    Thanks in advance.
