I have an older Buff Orpington hen (4-5years),she still lays great every summer. Every winter she has stopped laying completely but for some reason this winter she stopped and started back up again... She stopped right after she molted...middle to late fall. When i went to feed them last week, i noticed 3 eggs (i didnt bother to check sense they all stop laying ). I threw them out cause i didnt know how long they where there for..iv been collecting 2-3 eggs a day from her now..and i believe she is broody...i dont see her out in the morrnig and everytime i open the coop door she is sitting in the nest box with an egg..iv been taking the eggs but maybe i should leave some in there? Just incase she did go broody? She has never been broody before..and in the middle of winter when she normaly dosnt even lay?!
