Hi everyone, in the last 2/3 days one of my hens has taken to sitting in the nest box all day long. she comes out for food in the morning but the hogs the nest box all day after that. I have 5 hens, no rooster, all five are laying, and I only have 2 nesting boxes. I have another little house in the pen for them that we call the 'day room', with a cosy nest in it meant to any chook who simply cannot wait her turn in the nest box. It has been used in the last two days as my broody (if that is the case) is hogging a nest box. she also seems to have stopped laying herself so it sitting on the other girls eggs when they lay. I take them from under her but she is all fluffed up and making very grumpy sounds when I do this and tries to stop me. Is this broody behaviour? and without a rooster there is no point in letting her sit on eggs? what should i do???
