    False Alarm i guess she got off the Nest and i checked she just laid an egg if was the first one she has laid for me so i guess i didn't really know how she would act but i do have a question i have 3 hens laying in there with 12 eggs and no one has gone broody should i take the eggs?

    Yeah, if they're not broody, then I'd got ahead and collect the eggs so predators don't catch scent of the eggs and try to come in.
