    One of our hens has laid a HUGE double yoke egg and it seemed to me it took her a few days to get it out. She was in and out of the nesting box for at least two days. She has also recently become extremely broody, even attacked another hen and pecked her comb half off. Im concerned she is not laying often enough and is becoming nasty. Is there anything we can do for her? I'm concerned she's going to get an egg stuck in her vent. Thoughts?
