OK i have her in a small 3 ft by 7 ft indoor enclosed area. and have not seen any signs that she has left the nest box is that ok? So far no poo in the box with her at least none i see or feel i put a little food and water in with her which she gobbled down. Should i worry?

My advice is to make sure that her food isn't too close to her, so she has to get off the nest to get it. I had one that was setting in the barn on her eggs, and when it got close to time for her to hatch, I put her in a cage. She didn't get off the nest for 3 days!! But like the1much said, they won't starve themselves to death, but they will poo in the nest, so if her food and water is close enough where she doesn't need to get off to get to them, that's what will probably happen!
