My hen (bulldozer) has been laying in the nesting box for a little over three hours. Its really hot out, so I removed her from the nest and threw her outside to get some water. She did lay a egg but she didn't realize or something. I gave them some lettuce and headed back inside. I figured I'll check on them in a hour or so and make sure they have water and everything is alright. If she is still in there I'm going to guess she is broody. But she is almost 3 years old and has never been broody before. Although we got some new girls which some have started laying, so there is 5 eggs in the box almost everyday while I'm at school. I collect them everyday after school and if I have games or practice then when I get home. What do you guys think? Broody?
