I have a broody hen that's been sitting now for a week or so. The last three days when I let her out of her broody cage she struggles and strains to poop with little to nothing coming out. She still is eatting and drinking and running around but I'm starting to worry about her. She's older and has had the same problem in the past. I've always noticed she struggled to poop and strained for a few seconds before successfully passing something but going broody has made it worse.
