    OK I have a hen that is supposed to be nine months old! I think the estimate is WAAAy off. But, we've had her since July and no eggs. [​IMG]

    Recently our roo started taking after her and now she's keeping away from the flock.

    She found a shelf in the garage and started hunkering down in there scratching like she's taking a dust bath, but there's nothing there. Then she goes back to wandering around picking up bugs.

    Broody or just a goofy chicken?

    Goofy hen. If she was broody the only way you could get her off a nest is to take her off.
