    I have a 3 year old Buff Orpington hen that has been walking around for the past 2 weeks clucking as if she is broody. Is she doing this out of spite? She obviously knows that I have eggs to shove under her to hatch. There are eggs in her favorite nest box, but she is not sitting on them yet. Is there anything that I can do to encourage her to make up her mind?
