I have a BO that I think might be broody. There is one (and I can only assume it's the same one each time. I really don't know). Anyway, she is always slow to hop down from the nest to eat. Tonight she didn't come off of the nest to eat at all. She made a noise at me when I put my hand in. (I was giving her the egg that someone had laid on the floor. ) When I went back to check a few minutes later she had taken the egg but hadn't moved. Did you have broody hens that "practiced" like that beforehand? Is that any sort of indicator that she has gone broody? Also, if she is still there tomorrow, can I give her what ever eggs are laid tomorrow? I haven't gotten too many eggs per day lately (but that's a whole other topic), so I can't imagine that she is sitting on more than maybe 5 right now. Thanks!
