    Btw I just got her first egg yesterday please don't tell me she is broody. She sings her egg song, go in and sit on the fake eggs. Come back out take a sip of drink. Sing her songs again and go back in organize the eggs the fake ones. Sit back on it. This all happen within 15-20min. Is she laying or is she broody? I thought hen squat while laying. She look like she is covering up the eggs.

    Leghorns aren't known to go broody, they were supposed to "have it bred out of them". I'm sure there may be a few broodies out there, but she shouldn't be. I am sure if I had that thing come out of my butt, I would want to sit down for a while!

    Yep not broody. I just got my 2nd egg YAY! This egg is like a little bigger but sure what ever. It was fun listening to her finish egg song and I ran out and saw a warm egg.
