    My Buffs and Ameraucanas are 29 weeks. We have one Buff who seems to be hanging out in the nesting boxes all day long. My dd even reported that she was in the box last night when they went to lock up the coop. She seems like she's in that trance...

    When they spend 2 nights in a row on the nest instead of on their favorite roost, I consider them broody.
