    I have searched the boards some and would love a guide to whether or not a hen is eggbound (i unfortunately had to see some graphics that were disturbing during this search-but such is life in the wild right?)

    anyone know of a site or a doc that describes the signs?

    my new 2nd hen - she is young - maybe 6 months old - has stopped laying her small baby eggs in the last 3 days and is sitting in the nest box and I was wondering if i should worry-she seems normal otherwise
