    Is it possible for my 21 week old EE to be broody?! She's not yet laid an egg of her own, but she spent all day today in the nexting box on top of a fakey egg. Even now, at night, with the others roosting, she's in the box.

    What's up? Is she just getting a feel for things, getting ready to lay? Or is it just wishful thinking on ALL our parts?
