My youngest pullet - she's only 6 months old and just started laying a month ago - has suddenly gone broody and is setting on eggs of her own as well as eggs from my other three hens. I think she's a game hen mixed breed - I got her as a chick and have no idea what her parents were. But she's pretty small and lays small-medium sized white eggs. She is setting the eggs in a cat carrier, and I have stopped trying to see how many eggs are under her - she's gotten vicious! And the sounds she makes when disturbed - she sounds like a velociraptor!
I think 6 months is pretty early to go broody, am I right?
