My Splash Orphington just hatched her 1st baby Dec 28th - mixed with a RIR. Because I am new to chickens and the whole scheme of things, I didn't realize she was broody and kept collecting her eggs until the very last one she laid. The day before I thought she was upset with me for taking her egg, but I had not noticed her sitting in the nest. I decided not to collect any more eggs, and she only laid one more before she was apparently done. She has begun laying eggs again and being mommy to her chick. My question is, approximately how long before she becomes broody again? I do not want to collect the eggs if she is. Also, what are the tell tell signs of a hen becoming broody? Thank you for your input!
