So my broody is set to hatch tomorrow. I went into the coop today to let the girls out (broody is confined) and she was pacing back and forth, trying to get out of her pen! Usually she is very calm and sitting on her nest. I do not understand this behavior! She did let out a huge stinky poop. The other hens were watching her, like they couldn't believe how upset she was. Is she doing this because she just wants out or because she knows something is happening?? I am new to broody hens and I am worrying myself to tears!!!
