I have a barred rock (about 14 months old) that has seriously been broody for several months. She hardly ever leaves her nest unless i push her out. She is getting thin and her comb is shriveling up and very pale. She doesn't seem ill otherwise....today i pushed her out of the nest and she free ranged for an hour and seemed just fine. I checked her over and don't see any mites.....I have never wormed and probably should. Although not sure how that would affect the eggs. What do i get and where for worming? Today when she heard the door open to the coop she ran right in.....found a nest that had an egg in it and proceeded to climb on top of it and get comfortable. She so desperately seems to want to hatch a chick. Could she just be broody or do you think something else is up? Please let me know what you think!!
