Definitely. My Rhode Island Red, Alabama has decided to go broody... in September. And yesterday I took her out of the nest for a nice cool dunk in some water to cool her down. As she heads back over to the other hens I hear a weird flapping noise. I turn around and here is Alabama, soaking wet on top of one of my pullets trying to mate with her but she seems off balance because of the water and she just repeatedly tries to mate with this poor pullet who does not seem to mind. I have seen her do this before but never while she was broody! So Alabama thinks: 1) I am a rooster as she does the egg squat for me. 2) She is a rooster. 3) She is going to be a mother.
