    I am curious, my banty is broody and in two to four days is when hopefully chicks will hatch and two days ago I noticed the Banty Move directions in her Nesting Box. She was facing South and all of a sudden moved facing North. Is it Normal for her to be moving around? I am new to this ,so I have no clue. Please Help. Eggs seem fine. She is laying on a dozen eggs. Oh yeah and she started pooping right by the Nest when she has her potty spot and all of a sudden change her position on the nest as well as a potty station , Shes drinking water fine and this morning she went crazy and dropped all her food out of her feeder.:/

    When I have a broody they move around most of the time and they poo in all sorts of places! I wouldn't say It's unusual for them to move about.

    Ok well thanks for replying, it was weird to me that she would move positions but I am only a newbie and starting to learn.
