Hi, we have a 9 month-old Crested Pekin hen, Baby, who is acting really strange. She was in the greenhouse with us and was acting normal, then she went over to the chicken's nest in the straw bale, and started making the sweetest cooyest sounds I have ever heard a duck make. She then proceeded to pull straw out of the bale and put it around her and turn in circles until the nest was just perfect for her. She has not left the nest except when her buddies went to bed. Even then, she just stood in the greenhouse quacking happily and then went back to her nest. She is sleeping in the greenhouse tonight away from her buddies (witch is unheard of for Baby to do). Is this a sign of broodiness? We also found a clutch of 8 duck eggs under one of the bushes in the backyard (there were no feathers in the nest). We are pretty new to ducks and have no clue about broodiness with them. Thanks!
