This has probably been asked but I couldn't find it in the search. I have only had my chickens about a year so this is the first time I have seen my hens do this. I have 4 orphington hens and for the past week, everytime I check for eggs there is a hen in the back corner. I probably go out 2-3 times a day. Today I noticed all 4 in the yard so I went to check her spot and there were 7 eggs. I left them. I noticed all 4 out for about an hour and half or so. Do you think it could be a broody hen stting everytime I go in? Would a broody stay off the nest that long? Would she sit on that many eggs?
