Now about a week orso I went for 2 new hens , one is still adapting but the one that adapted perfect is now still in the playpen yet showing similarities with a broody and other time it looks to be not a broody hen , so which is it in fact ? Two days ago her poop changed tough to typicall broody poop , she comes from the nest but always goes back to it and if she'd find an egg she stays on it for hours totally flat yet not having her feathers all fluffed up and it's fine to just grab an egg , she also started to strip her belly , not constantly but enough to be halfnude there already , she only does this on the nest and not if she is in the pen walking around and eating . When feeding she does come to eat yet she takes it to the nest ?? and she eats it on the nest which I didn't want her to so I take her and the food out each time when she then starts to have that known ' complain tone ' , she is also a little bit , akward in her behavior just since today , when you take her of the nest just because she is sitting in there for hours she becomes afraid and flighty ? she didn't have this before , now she either runs of or starts to scream to let her go even when you just lifted her up for an egg and to put her on the grass , I'm a bit confused because she has a lot in common with the broodies but sometimes she just doesn't mind about it ? it is a blackcopper Marans .
