I have a flock of 12 hens and 1 rooster. My family just returned from a long weekend and one of my Golden Seabright hens (small, bantam) is sitting on 9 eggs-as far as I can tell none are hers. They belong to my Swedish Flowers, RIR, and Rhodebars. She does not want to move. This is a mountain of eggs for this small bird. Is this broody behavior? And what should I do? I was going to add 4 more birds to my coop today, what is the best course here??
