I just went out to collect eggs and found a hen in one of the favourite laying nests. She was very still and very flat on two eggs. While I contemplated her behaviour, another hen hopped up and started pecking her on the head. I shooed the offender away and then removed the first hen. Once I placed her outside, she began scratching around and acting fine. Might she be broody? The reason I'm dubious is that she is an Ancona. Thoughts? Also, I've noticed there has been a lot of "bullying" and possibly mixing up of the pecking order lately. One of our leghorns is not allowed on the roost at night and has had a bloodied comb. Maybe this is in some way related?
