    One of my laying pullets just laid an egg, she stood in there for a bit, then sat back down. Either she's laying another or going broody. I also have another laying pullet who is sitting on her own egg and someone elses. Could she be laying another or go broody? If they're both broody, what should I do?

    I can pet them and they don't puff up or show aggression.

    Well, the first chicken just walked out so she's not broody. The second is still in.
