I just found Rocky, dead, next to the broody hen in the nest the broody's taken over. I know broodies aren't known for playing nice, but is this a sign of foul (fowl?) play? Can a broody actually murder an adult chicken? Rocky, a hen, was the second bird and outranked the broody. I don't know whether her death had something to do with this big storm, or what. She was in perfect health and had laid an egg this morning.
