One of my chickens recently began acting peculiar. Rather than racing out of the coop to peck for worms in the spring mud, Nugget stayed in her nesting box. I thought she was just laying one of her signature sage-colored eggs. But when I found her in the same spot a few hours later, I knew something wasn’t right. I tried scooting Nugget out of the box. She wouldn’t budge. I tried again only to discover that chickens can make a growling sound of sorts with what I swear was an evil eye. A quick Google search revealed she wasn’t sick or hurt. Rather, I had a broody hen on my hands.
