One of my barred rocks (who aren't known to go broody usually, but she is not hatchery stock so who knows what that could mean) is always sitting in the next box each morning on hers and a few of the other hens' eggs. She screams at me as I approach, but after I gently lift her off and remove the eggs, within five minutes she's back with the flock and eating and drinking like nothing ever happened. For the rest of the day, she doesn't return to the empty next box. And she continues to lay eggs. Rinse, repeat each morning. So is this broody or not really? From everything I've read, it seems like a true broody would return to the nest even if it was empty. Or is that not the case? Could this be the real deal because she keeps sitting on the eggs each morning? We don't have a rooster, but I'd be willing to get some fertile eggs if she was really broody. I'm just not sure if she is or not. Oh and she is young, 22 weeks and only laying for about 4 weeks now. Thoughts?
