I've got this EE hen, had her a about a month now. she is the only adult bird I have, but i've got 9 chicks 4-8weeks old in a brooder that she can get right up to. The hen had been laying aprox every other day, then she went broody on two fake eggs that I endded up taking from her. Now every time I check on the birds she is laying next too the brooder, and she has stoped laying. I've been letting the chicks jump out when I feed them, and befor she went broody she would give them a peck if they got too close. now she stoped all pecking, and fallows them around, and today she was calling to them. She was even letting them pick at her feathers. so I'm thinking she thinks they are her babys, and that is why she is not laying what do you all think?
