This is one of my Buff Orp girls, Lily. She laid her first egg earlier this week, and we collected it even tho she chattered at us. Today, she laid her second egg, clamped herself down on the nest, and has refused to budge! She has been sitting like this for about 30 minutes now. She screams and flares up at us just for going in the hen house. We tried moving her to the space next to where she laid her egg, and she immediately tried to roll the egg under her! So I told my husband (after she bit us twice trying to collect the egg) to let her keep it. So we have created a "nesting" pen for her, and I am thinking I read that you should move a broody hen at night? Is that correct? I have had chickens before, but never had one actually go broody for me! This is my very first experience with a broody and I must confess, I am extremely excited and I am prepared to do whatever it takes to give this girl a successful, happy hatch! I am open to any and all advice!! Funny thing, my BO Roo, Pocket, came in the hen house, and I swear they had a conversation because 2 seconds later he was out in the run crowing his fool head off!!
