    I have two jersey giants and one always sits on the eggs each night and most of the day. She gets mad at me (raises her neck feathers) when I collect eggs and move her out of the nestbox. Not sure if this is typical for the breed, but if it is, then Jersey giants could be considered broody

    I have one that is one year old and she is hanging out in the boxes. I don't even know if she has laid an egg yet. Anyone? Ideas? Thoughts?
