Hello,

I have this leghorn hen that is about 2 years old, and has never gone broody. She also has not laid and egg since spring. Then today she kicks one of my hens of the nest, and sits on these eggs. She even screamed bloody murder when I walked up to it. I have wanted a broody hen for so long, so I don't want to falsely think that I have a broody hen. I ended up moving her into another pen away from the other hens trying to lay eggs, and had it so if she wanted to join the flock she could. Here are some pics.

Does she puff her feathers up as you walk by?
And scream at you when you touch her feathers?
I have 3 broody hens at the moment
One will full on attack you
The other two are silkies so they just frill up and do this little jig thing
If she is frilly and sqwaking then you have a broody hen
