    Could someone post a few ways I can know my hens are broody, or are about to go broody? (Other than constantly sitting on a nest.) They haven't yet,however, I would like to know what to expect before it comes. Thanks in advance.

    Once they go broody they will hiss and growl, some bite and scratch, they will puff up when you get close. None of mine have any pre Broody Behavior they just get on the nest and sit

    I agree with minihorse927. They will get into nest and you will know.
