~Dumb question of the week: I only have one girl laying every other day now, but this week am seeing a bit more red in some faces, and their molts are finished for the most part, so the eggs may start up. One of the EE had a habit of climbing in the box to cuddle with the other girl's egg(s). Today was the first day I've seen her do that since she stopped laying in Mid Nov. When I reached in to check for the egg, she was a bit testy with me. She's never done that before! Is there any possibility for a pullet/hen to go broody even though she has yet to start laying again? I know that even if she were to go broody, it would take a while to see how serious she is, but has any one had a chicken actually go broody who's not yet laying???? Even if she were to go broody, I doubt that I'd let her hatch in this nasty weather.
