    That's so weird! But maybe it's normal- I haven't had any broodys.

    LOL Well I've had another hen raise a few clutches of chicks but she never stood on her head! This silly thing was just sitting like that, as if it were the most normal thing in the world. Didn't move when I pulled some straw off her feathers or anything.

    That's too funny! Maybe she got a cramp and just needed to change positions.
