Is it really bad if your hen turns broody? My leghorn sits on the eggs and makes terrible growly noises at the other girls, but she lets me pet her and I can even reach under her and take the eggs. The amazing thing is normally she is really skittish and won't let pet her at all! She's nicer to me when she's on the eggs! Betty, my plymoth just runs up and checks if I stole them on her! It's kind of cute, the way she looks at me!
