    I have a gold laced wyandotte who has been sitting in the nest for 2 days. I have not seen her come out. She is all puffy, her feathers all blown up, and she makes a weir?call when I approach her. Is she just broody or is something else wrong?

    Yes, from your description she sound broody, and that weird noise you hear is a growl my broody hen sometimes hisses too.

    Could she be egg bound ?
