Our pullets are about 9 mos old. So today I go out to get eggs-we have 3 nests. I'll call them A, B and C. Stella the EE is in nest A so I check the other two. Nest B has two green eggs and we only have two easter egger pullets so Stella has laid her egg for the day already. Weird. So I get 2 brown from nest C. I figure Stella doesn't *need* to be in nest A, which happens to be the most popular nest, so I move the bin a few times to see if she'll get out. She stands up and I reach in for the eggs and she is sitting on 5 brown eggs. I take out the eggs and she gets out of the nest. 10 min later or so I go to take the eggs in the house and she is back in nest A, just sitting. No more eggs today. Would she be getting broody at this young age or do you think she was just wanting to hang out in a nest? btw we check eggs several times a day, including once when we lock them up for the night (at which time they're all on the roost). So no eggs could have been from yesterday.
