This may be a dumb question and have debated asking it but I just have to know. Will I know? I have some hens that sit on the eggs until I gather them. Sometimes they peck me a little but let me have them. No one really fights me. One young hen clucks real loud after I take the eggs. She's only 7 mo and just started laying. She's a Cochin. Which I know are known for broodiness. I've heard people say that they growl and you will know. If mine want to hatch I want them too. I just gather the eggs several times a day because my Buttercups are egg eaters. Thanks.
