    I have 11 red sex links, and I think one is going broody! I never thought a cross would go broody, because I thought that was pretty much bred out of them. But for the past 2 days all she's been doing is sitting in the nesting box. Gives me the stink eye, and won't let me get the eggs out from under her, which has never been a problem before. Does this sound like she's going broody? Has anyone had a broody rsl? Thanks in advance.

    Yea any hen has the potential to go broody even if they try to breed it out of her, i have production reds and they go broody all the time and are good mommas.
