The night before last one my buff Orphingtons went into a nesting box instead of the roost for the night, the next morning she left for a short time but returned to box. I thought she might be eggbound and gave her a hot bath, eventually around 2 in the afternooon she lay an egg which I took from the box. She stayed in the box for the rest of the day and night. This morning I thought she might be sick so I decided to move her into a separate crate. When I took her out of the nesting box, she looked pretty healthy so I put her into the run - she ate and drank although she seemed a little more aggressive then usual with other chix. Less then half an hour later she's back in the nesting box.
I have no roosters !
recommendations please ;)
also she's 1 year old
