Sooo my chickens have done wonderful at laying in their nest boxes......until........I had 2 hens go broody, once that happened, I have recovered over 50 eggs from various places under the hedges.....how can I convince them that they need to go back to being good girls and laying in their nice nest boxes?? The broody hens were separated from the flock and put into their own pens, and one has hatched her eggs, and the other is still sitting. Any idea's how to get the others to go back to laying in the coop?? I really hate to pen them up bc they enjoy free ranging, and I enjoy watching them free range. However, that may be the option I am faced with.
