I know Barred Rock's are reported to not go broody, and that is why they're good production hens. I have two barred rocks and upon looking in the coop today I noticed Esther was sitting in the box. She lays early in the morning, never the afternoon, so I opened the door to the garden. Usually she is the first out and the last in, but she stayed in the box! Eventually she got up and went onto the step to look around outside. I picked up her egg and turned to leave, she ran inside into the box and started screaming. So I put the egg on the side of the box, she tried to peck me and tucked the egg under her, wings spread slightly to cocoon it. I work on a farm, so i'm used to broody hens, and know how to break them. We do have a rooster in the pen, so she is very well fertile (he goes to charm her every morning straight out of the coup), and has displayed signs of wanting to set before. I just want to know if she is just being moody, or is it kind of possible for a barred rock to go broody?
