We had 2 hens (a buff and a RIR) hiding eggs about 3 weeks ago. I found their spot and just put a nest box in for them because, well, honestly it was a more convenient spot for me than their coop haha! A week later, I noticed I was still missing eggs and I was pretty sure the Rhode Island red had gone rogue again. Turns out she has, I found her spot this morning. Is it possible that she is trying to go broody? That she is attempting to find a hidden spot and get a clutch of eggs ready to go? Do chickens give indicators that they are about to go broody? We WANT her to go broody, or any of them really. Can I help encourage her? Should I leave eggs?
