    I have a pullet that is a game mix. She is on laying her 4th egg and she acts broody while she is laying. Is she just saying "hey leave me alone I'm laying here!" or does this mean broodiness in her future?

    A couple of mine will sit on their eggs after they lay them. My light brahma would lay on them for hours. She freely let me take the eggs out from under her, until one day she turned into chickenzilla. I thought I had a broody [​IMG] but she seems to have snapped out of it. [​IMG]
