    Got a black sex-link that's been on a nest all day. She don't try to attack me or anything when i got the eggs out from under her, but she will not get off. Broody or not??

    If she spends two nights in a row on the nest instead of in her favorite roosting spot, she is broody. Some can fake it for a while, but the two nights test has worked for me.
