    Our hens will be 25 weeks old tomorrow. One of our white rocks has been laying for about 3 weeks. Today she stayed in a nest box for 2 1/2 hours. I gave her a little goose to see if there were any eggs under her. There were 2. I then tried to prod her out with no success. I then just picked her up and removed her from the nesting box. She ran outside with the others. My question is could she be going broody at 25 weeks old??

    A bit unusual, but anything is possible. If she sleeps on the roost tonight, she's not broody.
