    I am still new to it all, got my first set of chicks this February. My EE hen Squeakers just started laying last week, I have gotten five beautiful green eggs out of her. Now this morning she layed an egg and is still sitting on it and being a little protective, has she gone broody? And if so what do I do?!

    I think she's broody! When hens are broody, I just leave them alone. If you break their broodiness it can lead to layers fatigue(or so I've been told).
