I have a chicken that has been playing with broodiness. There was no eggs that were fertile so I let her do her thing. It's been awhile and all of a sudden it seems as if she has gotten over it. Before she was always in the box and i had to pull her out. She would go back up in there sooner than anyone else. Now, she is doing none of those things. Back to a regular chicken. This is perfectly fine. The thing is, I went out there today and she had some feathers on her back missing. You could tell cause they aren't laying right so I thought hmmm she is molting. (Another one of mine has just got over her molt) When I went into the coop and in the nestbox there is a butt load of feathers. I know they are hers. So I thought well maybe she was broody and was building a nest but she has gotten over that. SO which is it broody or a molt? She is fine. I am just curious and baffled. Thanks.
