Do Easter Eggers go broody? Today Big Chicken was in her nest laying. I left her to it and went to the PO the store....Was gone over an hour. When I got back I went to check and she was still in the nest. A lil worried I decided to check under her. OMG!! I thought she was gonna kick my butt! I have hens that will peck at me if I reach under them but she was BAD! I had to pull my jacket sleeve over my hand and I could still feel it! She was screaming at me the whole time and yes she did have an egg under her. I was finally able to get the egg but she stayed in the nest. I left her alone for a bit then went back. I had to physically remove her from the box. She yelled at me the entire time. Finally she left the coop still yelling. And all across the yard yelling lol. Even Mr. Rooster came running to check on her. Most of the stuff I have read says EE don't go broody. Im thinking if she does it again to take the egg but sneak a fake under her and see what happens. What do you think? Is this broody behavior or just a ****** hen?
