    I think my young bantam is eggbound. She's been in and out of the nesting box for about 2hrs and now hasn't left it for over an hour. I've never had an issue with this before so I'm not sure what's going on. Does anyone know if that's the problem?

    Does she seemed distressed at all? Has she been laying long? Sometimes it just takes them longer.

    of course, because i posted a question, she goes and lays her egg about ten minutes later! no she didn't really seem distressed except for her talking a lot more than usual. turned out she laid her biggest egg yet and it must have been hard on her. thanks for replying tho! [​IMG]

    Good thing. You can do a search for "egg bound hen" if you want info for future reference. There are some very good articles already written.
