I have an EE that is a bit over 2 years old. Sunday we noticed her on the nest, either off and on, or she was there all day. They free range. I don't think she's been sitting on the nest the past few days, but she was on it when I went to lock up tonight. Sunday after getting the eggs from her and running her off of it at dusk, I put golfballs on the nest just to see if she was wanting to stay on the eggs. Tonight, she had one ball under her, and the other under her chest. One egg was laid by someone else in between the two nests they have, which tells me she had been there a while. (For nests, I cut a bucket in half and put a board in front to keep hay in it.) They were locked up all day and no other eggs were laid from the other hens. They tend to only use the one nest. She's one of the oldest hens, and isn't low in the pecking order, so I don't think that she's being kept off of the roost. Could she be going broody? The one egg that was there was not hers, so that park confuses me a bit. Yes I have a rooster, so I'm fine with her going broody.
