We have 2 Buff Orpington pullets(6 1/2 months old). One of them, who is named Caramel, has been kind of broody sometimes, but not for very long and she wasn't very serious about it. But the other one, named Setherina, seemed pretty serious about it today! When we went out to collect eggs, she was sitting on some! She was all puffed up, and when Caramel or the rooster(Foghorn) came near the nest, she would make a loud growl and would puff up at them! It sounded really weird. She stayed on the eggs for most of the morning, but by the afternoon, she finally got off. Then, Caramel got on them instead for a little while, then got off. By Spring we are hoping she will go broody again and be serious about it. It's been cold here lately(was warmer today; around 20-27*F.) so we didn't really expect her to be really serious about hatching the eggs. But it did surprise us the way she was acting towards the rooster and Caramel! She didn't bite us or growl that much at all when we touched her or the eggs. So if she does try hatching some chicks out in Spring(or around there) we could use the homemade Styro-Bator AND the two hens!!!! Boy, we are gonna have A LOT of baby chicks this Spring! Any takers??? LOL Thanks for reading!
