I have two black australorps who have gone broody. Last night I tried unsuccessfully to move them to private quarters--they busted out of my makeshift arrangements and are now back on nestboxes--will try again today. The question I have relates to a THIRD black australorp. This one is often very often found hunkered down on the nestbox perch just outside the box occupied by one of the broodies. When I approach, she fluffs up her feathers and growls just like the two broodies do. What *IS* she doing??? Is she trying to get broody, too? Is she BFFs with the hen in the nestbox? What's going on here? These broodies will be the end of me!
