This hen went broody again a few days ago. Last spring we left eggs for her to hatch. Unfortunately not wanting to expand the flock at this time. We move her a few times a day and try to collect eggs quickly.

What are some of your tricks to “ snap” her out of it?

Not happy about this find today! A huge hole in the chicken run coming from under the coop. .. and p**p in the coop! Consulted the Goodles (o)possum, maybe! Thankfully no signs of struggle.
Spent the afternoon locking it down further and installed motion lights. Made a hot pepper concoction with vinegar that I will pour near the coop to hopefully deter the “ critter”. What else can I try?
