    My hen sat in her nest box last night with about 15 eggs in it. She got up this morning and layed a shell-less egg on the ground. Are these clues to that she might be going broody?

    Maybe if you change your title to something more like, "Broody hen: shell-less egg?" Or something like, "Broody hen laid shell-less egg".
    Good luck!
