    from what I've read and learned so far it sound like she's broody ...is there anything else strange about her behavior? If not, then your hen wants to be a momma!

    She certainly doesn't need eggs to be broody... [​IMG] So either try to break her, let her sit on nothing, or get that girl some eggs [​IMG]
