I had a chicken I though was going broody. She sat in the nesting box for a while and fought off the other chickens. They had to go use the other box. Anyway, I took extra eggs and slid under her (She pecked the fool out of me!) She sat there all day, getting up once to run out and get a drink of water. Then, about 30 min before I closed the coop, she went out, walked around, ate, drank, did her business. When the rooster said time to go in, she went in and got on her roost. I waited another 15 min, but she never made a move to the eggs. So I collected them. Do they fake broodiness sometimes? Does this mean she is ready to go full on broody soon?
