I'm still pretty new at this. I'm trying to determine if my Buff O is about to go broody on me. This week for about 2 days, she had a pale comb and wattles, was picking at her food, being lazy. I don't think she laid during that time. Suddenly, her color is back and she's eating. I think she laid an egg yesterday, although I'm not certain. She's been in and out of the coop, but has been sitting longer than usual in the nestbox (up to an hour or so). I've noticed no sign of obvious illness. No worms, no external parasites, no weird poop, her crop seems fine. Could she be in a hormonal transition, as in semi-broody? She turned a year old just before April.
