I have three white leghorn pullets. Today, one sat in the nesting box for over an hour while the other two did their free ranging. They love that and to sit in the box and not be outside is not normal. Anyway, one sat in the nesting box for over an hour and didn't leave an egg. I just looked her over and could not find any bugs/lice crawling on her but she has no feathers on her belly. The underside of her is rather hard too compared to the other two. She seems to be walking normal and I tried to watch her backside for pulsing but did not see her do that. Could she be egg bound? How long do I have before I need to help her? That sounds like I don't want to help. Not so. I just don't know how long it will take for someone to answer and don't want her to be in any sort of pain.
