I am a first time chicken owner, and looking for a bit of advice. I picked up 4 red sex-links last weekend. I got 3 brown eggs on my first day (one hadn't started laying yet), so that meant every one of the sex-links was laying. Two days later someone laid an egg in the middle of the night (under the roosting bar). For the past 3-4 days I have not had another occurrence of all girls laying. I noticed that one girl tends to sit on the others' eggs. She still roosts at night and I see her go out first thing in the morning before eggs are laid (not sure how active she is during the day since I've been at work). I thought maybe she might be egg bound but I haven't felt anything lumpy/strange in her abdomen or her vent. According to the farm I got her at she's about 5-6 months old (just laying). Her comb isn't very red right now. She feels a bit skinny compared to the other girls--her bones stick out the most. I gave her a warm bath in case she was egg bound and when she came out she was picking at her breast feather--not sure if this was just because they were wet and she was upset or maybe a sign that she's broody. Is it possible for a hen this young to go broody? Should I keep her inside in a crate for a few days to keep an eye on her or am I just having newbie worries?
