We had noticed that a hen or hens had started laying eggs in a little pile in a far corner of the coop. Well today, as I was collecting eggs I found one of my red hens lying over in the corner all fluffed up and flat. Thought she might just be laying but she's been there all day and hasn't budged. She can't have more than 2 eggs! What should I do? Can I break her from brooding? Should I stick other eggs underneath her? There possibly is only one egg under her as I collected them all out of her spot yesterday (a nice little set of four :-( ). Suggestions?
