What should I do if one of my four hens has gone broody, refusing to get out of the nesting box?
One of my four hens has gone broody, refusing to get out of the nesting box beside my hen run. There is no cockerel so the eggs are not fertile. What can I do?
You need to physically separate her from the nesting box so that she can no longer sit on the eggs. Put her in a separate area for a few days to break the habit, and she should go back to normal.
