So typically, bad time of year, one of my Welsummers has gone broody. We've decided as we have a small heated coop nearby to allow her to sit on some eggs and move her out next Tuesday. So this morning I open the nest boxes and she's sat on her eggs, screeching at me. Fair enough, later on I go down to check and a white Deleware is sat on the clutch, Welsummer is nearby on the floor. Assuming she left to get some food and water and this Deleware took the opportunity to lay in a nice warm spot. Anyway the Del was there for 3 hours. When I then went down one of my freedom rangers was sitting on the clutch, puffed up and sprinkling saw dust around. The Welsummer was now perched up on a roost nearby. As I sat and monitored the Ranger finally got out of the nest box but the Welsummer just sat there staring at me so I picked her up and put her back on her eggs. Are my other hens just stealing her nestbox whenever she leaves to lay? Or do I have a bunch of broody hens?
