    I had 3 Red's one was killed by dog last week. She was the queen. One now sits on eggs all day. I took her out the coop yesterday and placed her in the run. She ate and drank. I don't see any problem with her color she looks healthy.Is she scared cause the other was killed or does it mean some other problem. I haven't seen her poop yet.Any advice? Other hen looks and acts fine.

    It sounds as if she has gone broody.
