Will a hen tend to sit on an egg when there is no rooster?
I have three hens that tend to sit on the eggs, but I also have three roosters, so I think it is just something some chickens like to do!

before I got my roo I had several hens sitting on eggs
Thank you, still a newbie!
I think hens will even sit on golf balls or other types of fake eggs. It's just instinct. I don't think they know which ones might be fertile and which are not.
