She's not (Buff Orpington 29 weeks) technically in the nesting box. She's beside it and she's been in her own little nest she's created for herself from a hole she had dug.
A newly laying hen can't go broody, can they? After one egg? she doesn't trill, or fluff up her feathers when i stuck my hand under her.
Is this just new layer anxiousness and confusion?

I’m going to say new layer quirks.... but if she stays there overnight, she’s broody.

shhh don't say that no! :tongue
Hopefully she isn't going broody after the first egg - she's also the sweetest of my ladies so far.

my other BO's aren't squatting but 1/4 of my EEs are just starting to do the squat.

my pullets sit on their newly laid egg for up to an hour efore getting off, id say if she doesnt get off and go to the roost with the rest of the flock and is still there in the morning she is broody. but she doesnt sound broody to me though
