Abigail is a little over a year old, Austrolorpe, very gentle and easy going. Dependable egg layer. She is molting for the first time and seems confused. I understand that egg laying will decrease if not cease entirely for a spell, but she doesn't seem to get this. For most of this week, she sits on her favorite nest and just, well, sits. I have had to rout her out to make sure she eats and drinks, but within an hour or so, she's back on the nest. I have felt for any bound eggs - none - she is in no pain or discomfort but she is very upset when I remove her from the nest. She seems to be both broody and moltey at the same time. Has anybody else had something like this happen with a hen?
