I’ve got a 7 month old red speckled Sussex hen who just started laying eggs last week. We’ve noticed this last week some strange behaviors from her when she goes to lay her egg. She gathers all the eggs in the nesting boxes together & sits on them. She allows us to take them out from under her but doesn’t move from her spot. Once she lays her egg she then leaves the boxes without any fuss. Is she trying to go broody? She’s so young I wouldn’t think so but I’m just not so sure. She’s done this for 2 days straight now. Help?
