Well, Midge's chicks were rehomed last week and Midge moved back into the big coop. Everything was right broody-wise. Until today. I opened the door to the coop to check on any hens or pullets who were laying eggs. Midge (Cochin Bantam) was sitting in one box, Lily (Gold Sex Link) was sitting on the ground. Somebody laid an egg on the ground and Lily was sitting on it. That wasn't unusual, sometimes they will lay their eggs in the corner vs their boxes, but then Lily GROWLED and me! Yes, growled! Lily never growls. She will squawk if you disturb her laying her egg, but nothing else. She protested greatly as I put her in a box. Later I came out to check on them. Lily hadn't moved. She growled and said, 'took took took', just like Midge had when she was brooding. Uh oh. Waited 2 more hours. Then went again. "Brraawl. Took took took" Yep. She's broody. Darn it, Lily! I would never expect you to brood!
