I have a Dixie Rainbow (hybrid) that is shown in my avatar that went broody about 2 1/2 weeks ago. she is almost 9 months old. I know she is getting off the nest in the mornings because each afternoon when I tend to the flock, she is in a different nest box. Question 1: Is this normal for a broody hen to switch nests daily?? I have 6 boxes and she's been in all of them. She doesn't appear to have a favorite. The other weird thing is I always check under her when I'm collecting eggs and often there is no egg under her while the other boxes may have some in there. Question 2: Is it weird that she would switch to a box with no eggs in it? I haven't picked her up but I'm sure she's lost weight over the last couple weeks. Each day when I go in the coop I do offer her some feed in whichever box she's in and she gobbles it up so I know she's hungry. Outward appearance is good though. Her comb is still bright red and she's alert and watches and talks at me while I'm cleaning up things in the coop so at this point I'm not worried about her and haven't tried to force her off any of the nests but just think it's strange she keeps switching nest boxes. I thought broody hens would pick a nest and stay there? Lastly, I don't have a rooster so she's not getting any action.
