Hello! I've had some Rhode Island Reds & Orpingtons sit in nests all day and make dragon sounds at me when I took eggs out. I thought that was broody and they seemed to just get on with life. Well...........I have a cuckoo marans that has been hanging out in a nest box 24/7 for days. I finally started taking her out because I thought maybe she was sick. She is totally puffed up and lunges at me. Today I noticed she is completely bald on her chest (feathers in all the nest boxes). Is THIS broodiness or is she really sick? Will she just get going again on her own do I need to do something? She's acting WAY different than any of my other hens that I thought were broody.
