I have a cuckoo maran that hatched a late set of chicks late August... Molted... thought she has been laying( and she might still be) but I find her on eggs a lot when I check on the girl, she's is keeping them warm during the cold the last few weeks lol!! No frozen eggs for me! Now I've been noticing small feathers in the nesting box..yup her chest is quite thin! Could she be broody? Or will she become full time broody!? Thanks!
