    We have a approx 9 month old pekin chicken, who for the last days has just sat up on her shelves in her shed not really moving, when you go near her she is quite ratty and pecks you, this morning with gloves we managed to pick her up and there are no eggs under her, i got her down this morning and she wandered around for a bit had something to eat and drink but has now gone back to her spot? can she be broody, even though she is sitting on no eggs?

    Yes, she certainly can be broody even with no eggs. And yes, that's what it sounds like.
