I have an orpington that as of yesterday, has been sitting on eggs in the box. She's known for being lazy and just hanging out in there but this is different. This time she returns to the box when we take her out and skips treats. We brought her in for the night thinking she was having some issue...fine, this morning...fine. Now she's back in the box and all puffed up. Opinions?

Is she on nest most the day and all night?
When you pull her out of nest and put her on the ground, doesn't she flatten right back out into a fluffy screeching pancake?
Does she walk around making a low cluckcluckcluckcluckcluck sound on her way back to the nest?
If so, then she is probably broody and you'll have to decide how to manage it.
