Ok, so a few months ago we were gifted two 1 year old hens. At that time it was known one of them was broody and wasn't producing. I looked around on the internet and some suggestions were to cage her in something like a bird cage, suspended off the ground so she couldn't just roost like her instincts wanted her to. So we hauled out our dog kennel and I put it up on two saw horses. After about 3 days, she laid a "softshell" egg (unaware of the correct term, but it was like just the membrane, yolk, and white, no shell). After that, she was laying one per day just like her sister. That went on for less than two weeks and she's back to being broody again while her sister has not once done it. What am I doing wrong here? Any other tips or tricks to knock her out of it and keep her out of it? Bonus question: Anyone know what breed they are? The original owner didn't know either. Kind of hard to see in the pic, but they have feathers all the way down to their toes. The one with the white flecks on her head is Broody McBroodyface.
