My OEGB has been broody off and on over the last month or so. She is just brooding straw, except when the other hens lay their eggs on top of her, that is. Poor girl. She gets soooo upset! She hold her wings out at an angle and fans her tail up she looksShe gets out of the nest boxes every day to eat, drink, poop, take a dustbath and SING. The first think she does is hop up on my milk crate stool in the yard and she sings an egg song. A much longer, louder and more complex one than she does when she lays. She even hops around and fans her tail and clucks and runs around in circles like she is after an imaginary foe! It's something to see! She eventually winds herself down an then runs off for a bath next, then she eats, drinks and back on the nest. She has been sitting for 4 weeks with no eggs! I can get some eggs for her i suppose, but she has already been at it for so long I am afraid it wont be good for her. If she hatches some babies will she finally stop brooding?
