    I Have a sitting hen she is RIR
    and if i continue to take her eggs will she quit sitting?
     
  2. No. That usually doesn't work. I always (first) try picking up the hen and carrying her far from her nest and setting her down. Note: I free-range my flock so it is easier, so I don't know if you free-range but..
