Calypso, our partridge cochin bantam has started hanging out in the nest box pretty much all the time. If we take her out she seems a bit unsteady on her feet and doesn't seem interested in eating much. WHenever we go back in there she has climbed back in the nest. I have a couple golf balls in there as the Polish have been laying on the floor. She isn't aggressive at all when we move her and doesn't mind being stroked on her back. She has been doing this for a couple of days. Do you think she is broody or is she sick? I have never been around a broody hen before. She is 27 weeks old and has been laying for about 6 weeks. If she is broody how long should I wait before I put eggs under her? We are thinking of moving the roo and two polish hens out in the next few days and leaving her in there in peace? Would this be good?
