I have a young Wyandotte that lays her eggs in a place outside the nesting box. Two days ago she was squatting in the area that she lays her eggs. I picked her up and saw that she was sitting on an egg. I'm assuming that she is brooding since she has been squatting for so long, acts protective when other hens come over, etc... I did remove the egg from under her. She eats when I bring food to her and was cruising around with the other hens today. But later, she was back on her brooding area. So is this something that she will get tired of when she realizes that she does not have an egg to sit on? Would it be best to make her warm area a little less warm? Any help/thoughts are appreciated.
