    I think I have a broody! I have only ever had one broody chicken in 12+ years owning chickens! And when the chicken did go broody, I was away at camp, so I didnt see them hatch, or in the first few days.

    How do I know if she is really broody?

    Go check on her at night. If the other chickens are roosting and she is still setting on her nest, then she's broody. Good luck!
