Okay, I have detected that I have a broody hen! As a first time Back Yard chicken keeper, I have never dealt with this....but, I do have a question! The Holidays and been a bit challenging to say the least, and I let eggs sit in the nesting boxes for 2 days, I collected 14 eggs from 6 hens yesterday! Today I come home at 4pm and noticed I have a hen laying in the nesting box with 5 eggs under her, from today's lay. She was a bit feisty, and angry when I pushed her out to collect the eggs! Did she go broody because she saw the 14 eggs from the days before? She is only 8 months old!!! Did I cause her to go broody, for not collecting the eggs?
