my Rir pullet sits on the eggs when my others lay them. she also doesnt leave the nest box unless there arent any eggs in it. im hoping she isnt broody.i am pretty shure she is laying i have 4 pullets and i get 2-3 eggs daily. Every once and a while get 4 eggs

If she gets up she is not completly broody. If broody they will stay after you take the eggs and sit on an empty nest. When you boot them out they will come right back. Be all puffed up and grouchy. Maybe even peck you.

She may be staying in the nest for some other reason. Hope this helped a little.
