Hi, First of all, I'm not sure what people mean by a hen being "broody" - does that mean she sits on an egg to hatch it? Secondly, I got my very first egg yesterday from one of my 22-week old RIRs . However, she is acting weird today - panting (it is hot here and a few others are panting as well) and acting sleepy and standing/sitting with her rear in the air. I also couldn't help but notice that her rear (the vent, I think???) is swollen and throbbing and the "opening" is big (I hope I explained it correctly). Is she OK? Is she going to lay another egg?
