We have a 5+ month old Buff Orpington that I think is broody. Is it unusual to have a broody hen at such a young age and I don't think she is laying yet? When we move her, sometimes the nesting box is empty under her. The other boxes have eggs in them. I am not sure if she is laying yet, my guess is that she has layed a couple small eggs at best. She doesn't like to move, and really growls at you when you try to move her. I caught her rolling eggs under her once to keep them away from me when I tried to move her. I just want to make sure she is broody and that something else is not wrong with her. She seems to be healthy and a little growly when she is out of the box to eat and drink. THanks for any ideas.
