broody chooks are driving me crazy!

i have seven chooks. five of them are layers.
four of my layers are currently broody! ARRRGH!
one- my buff sussex a.k.a 'harry the buddah' has been broody ever six weeks since mid july. it is driving me crazy!  does anyone else have this problem with their chooks?
harry, or 'the buddah' as she is affectionately known, spends three & a half weeks plonked in her nest, refusing to move followed by around two-ish weeks whereby she'll lay three eggs every four days, before transforming back into 'broody mode' once more.

presently i am scoring one egg every two days. good thing it is too hot to bake, otherwise...well, i shudder to think! :)
