    Today at about 3:00 ish my 7 mo easter egger went to her little hidden spot in the straw under the coop. After i left for maybe an hour she was still there. I went to see if she had any eggs under her and sure enough she had six. In the whole process she was ruffling her feathers and making a horrible screechy sound nothing like her normal im laying an egg scream.

    I would wait a few days and if she is still doing this then I think you've got a broody hen.

    She got off the nest but she is still acting not like herself.
