    Very good article...and very timely! I have 2 young Wyandotte-Brahma hens that have suddenly taken up residence in adjoining nest boxes. In 9 years of raising chickens, I've never really had hens go broody. These 2 are a real trip--they "growl" when we gather eggs from under them. I thought we might have to pry them out of the boxes but today I noticed one of them came outside to graze with the other hens. The other will follow soon, I think.
