Does this mean she is trying to brood? She finally came off winter hiatus yesterday. Hubby took today's egg within a minute or two of her laying it (still toasty warm) and she went berserck. Very loud clucking noises, pacing the run. Not happy one bit. We gave her scratch and after pecking that for a bit went right back to it. I finally put the egg back and shut her in the coop. I can't let her make noises like that.... What am I supposed to do? Should I be able to take the eggs at night after she goes to sleep or is this going to be the new routine? She didn't do anything like this last year. I've grown attached to this one, but if she is going to insist on making so much noise I will have to eat her.
