    I also put this in the egglaying subforum... but I think that was the wrong spot....

    While hunting for a nest...... I think I found a broody hen. A nice little nest, in a natural hole in the ground under brush. Protected from the weather nicely. I discovered her about 4 hours ago, and she is still there and it is nearly dark. I'll peak there in the morning to see if she is still there. It seems a little strange to me that she would go broody this late...... it's getting cold. Could she be broody? Or just comfortable in her little spot?
