So my 5mo old hens are starting to scratch around and settle themselves into nest boxes (YAY) so today we put some fake eggs in there to encourage the hens to lay in them... Well my dear little Nora (a English Bantam) hopped right into the nest box and began to settle herself over the egg. I didn't think anything of it until about an hour ago, (we put the eggs in this morning around 9 and it is now 1pm) and Nora was still setting on the fake egg. So I asked her what she was doing and walked over to see if maybe () she had laid something and she growled at me! Being confused I tried again to pick up the fake egg and she pecked my hand and made an awful racket that brought all the roos running. It seems to me she is broody, but... She has never laid an egg? Why are my hens so weird. Anyway, has anyone ever heard of this? Thanks! Hope everyone's having a good day!
