I am kinda new at this but I have eleven hens and one roo who are 5 1/2 months old. I am getting about 2-3 eggs per day and they are starting to get bigger. I have already gotten a couple of double yoakers! My question is, how do I tell if one of the hens is starting to go broody? I noticed one of the girls just staying in the box. I thought she might be trying to lay so I came back a couple fo hours later and she was still there. She did get out for a few minutes the second time I was out there, but went right back. She fussed with the hay and then sat down. I went into the coup and she did not jump up. Usually they jump up and go to the other side of the coup. She just sat there. I had to pat her to get her up to check for eggs. After I was finished, back she went. I was wondering if this is broody or not. I was not sure since they are still so young. Thanks for all of the help you all have provided to this newbie!
