One of my six hens has gone broody. She won't leave the nest box, sits on the other hen's eggs, unless I chase her out, I only have two nest boxes and so I'm finding stray eggs inside the coop where they are getting stepped on and broken. Raising chicks is out of the question (unfertilized eggs!) and anyway I don't want any more birds. And I can't isolate her as some of done to theirs. I don't even know if she's laying anymore because of this. Will this phase ever pass?
