    I have been reading all the post on this lately,,nothing matches exactly what my chicken is doing. But close.

    She has been laying for a month and is about 20 weeks old. The last 3 days she has been spending most of her day/time in the nest box.
    Thing is,,she still lays an egg everyday and I can reach and take it from under her with no problem. She doesnt puff up,,,well,,, maybe a little,, but does not peck or act as if she cares. She is laying there most of the time with nothing under her. All night too.
    Is she going broody????

    She could be thinking about going broody [​IMG] Sometimes they "play around" with the idea for a few days, and then will either decide to go broody full force or they'll snap out of it...
