I'm pretty sure my Buff Orpington just went broody. This is a new thing for us. She seems to have collected all of the other hens eggs and is now sitting on them. We don't have a rooster. She's sitting on our breakfast. She got up to eat this morning. Another hen went and sat in her favorite nest box to lay. Josie, my Buff, sat patiently in the next box until she was done and then went back to sitting on her collection. She started this yesterday. If I peek in at her, she puffs up and growls at me. Broody behavior, right? I currently have a dozen hatching eggs in an incubator. They're at about day 5. Should I pull my eating eggs when she gets up to eat and replace them with a few of the fertile ones? Do you have to replace the same number that you take? I feel like I'm committing a crime if I waste her broodiness.
