    My last hen has started acting odd . Instead of running around the yard all day she now spends most of the day camped by the feeder in the coop. She has also stopped laying and is leaving poop that looks like it came from a dog. Is this broody ? She eats and drinks whenever she gets up or we disturb her, but returns to the feeder to lay down again. I gave her an egg to sit on, but she didn't return to the same spot, but that just might be beacuse she is 3/4 blind
