Broodiness in the domestic hen is characterized by incubation of eggs and subsequent care of the young. Incubation behaviour is initiated by increased plasma progesterone and oestrogen from maturing ovarian follicles that induce nesting behaviour. This is subsequently transformed into incubation behaviour by increased plasma prolactin in association with decreased gonadotrophin and ovarian steroid secretion.
