    So I have a Black Copper Maran who seems like she is broody. She is always in the nest box and gathering everyones eggs, she gets very mad at me when I take them, and she has a bare tummy now too BUT she is still laying? She is our only BCM so I know they are her eggs. I was going to get her some fertile eggs to hatch out some chicks but I don't want to if she is really not broody since she is still laying. I have only had one other broody before and she stopped laying so I am so confussed:rolleyes: any ideas?
