We have a hen nesting. She hasn’t left the nesting box in days. Each day when we collect eggs we slip a hand underneath her silky body and take her egg that she has laid that day. When we do this she acts a little perturbed and sometimes takes a peck at our arm but she won’t move.
p.s. Here's Megan's chicken "Donut" during her broody phase last spring. She didn't even have any eggs underneath her!
