    a hen is thinking as she's laying an egg? [​IMG]



    does she get into a certain "position"? [​IMG]




    does she have a particular expression on her "face"? [​IMG]




    does your hen make a special sound? [​IMG]

    Mine are all so different. I have one who goes into stealth mode...she sneaks and hides and usually ends up in a corner behind something. I have one who starts cackling about an hour before and goes for at least an hour afterward. [​IMG] One is total no-nonsense. she walks into the nest, squats, drops the egg and gets out quickly. One will play with the egg afterward forever...but never really thinks about actually going broody. One still seems confused though she has been laying for months. She gets a confused look, squawks a few times and drops an egg wherever she happens to be. Chickens are smart little animals...they have to be to have so many different personalities.
