    Please, just to make me happy, tell me my Andalusian is just taking a long time to lay her egg and her growling at everyone who comes near is just because she doesn't want to be disturbed! These aren't supposed to be a broody breed so hopefully she is just being a copycat for a day just to see what all the hooplah is about sitting in a nest all day.

    It can happen. I know someone else whose Andalusian hatched out chicks. It was Sept. and she was having no luck finding homes for those chicks.

    Gee thanks! LoL. I have no problem finding a home for any chickens... Have some friends that will take any chicks or chickens I cull.
    My major problem would be nest space for my remaining layers.

    I've known folks with White Leghorns that have gone broody and hatched out chicks. It can happen in any breed.

    It just doesn't happen very often in the Mediterranean breeds.
