    I have a 6 month old black sex link hen that likes to sit on her egg for awhile (couple of hours) after she lays it and then finally gets off the nest. She is starting to go broody?

    Most of my hens get off the nest right after they lay the egg.

    Possibly. Maybe she is just relaxing after all the hard work.
