I went to collect my eggs today and found my six month old Black Java hen in the next box. I reached under her and collected four eggs. She pecked at me a bit, but didn't put up much of a fight. She's only been laying for about two weeks. How did she manage to get four eggs? Did she just watch where other hens laid their eggs and then just deposited hers on top? Is this a sign that she has a strong broody tendency? Is this normal for a young hen? Don't they normally go broody in the fall? Can you tell I'm new to all of this?
