Broody 3 year old ?

Recommended Posts

My oldest hen has been acting rather strange. She's never been broody before, I put this down to her being a Hybrid. She's been puffing herself up a lot. She free ranged yesterdaray, her run was open. She spent a lot of time on the step outside my French doors. As soon as I put them away last night, she went into our wooden rabbit hutch/nesting box. I don't know if she stayed in there all night. When I got up this morning she was in there again. I tried to coax her out with some treats, but she wouldn't budge. Any ideas. We have no worms. :(GNR. Thought I didn't have red mite!!
