I had 2 hens that would not leave the nest yesterday night. A blue ameraucana that has been broody before and a cream legbar that had not been broody before. They are both almost a year old. Both were puffing up and complaining that I removed them so I figured both must be broody. I placed them both in a separate coop with a wire floor, roost, water and food. It rained really hard this afternoon and both got a bit wet, I dried them up and brought them to a more protected location. Just went out to check on them and one of the 2 laid an egg. It was broken on the floor and both hens were up in the roost. Was I mistaken? Not broody? It should take a while for them to start laying again, right? Thank you all, these are my first chickens, lots to learn!
