My 6-month old Cinnamon Queen Pullet layed a beautiful egg this morning. Everything was well until I came over after lunch and noticed she was sitting in the box. She had already laid an egg that day so I was confused. I left and came back a few hours later to her still there. She looks distraught and is making a high-pitched screetching noise. Is she bound? Is she just broody? She's never been broody before and the noise sounds strange.

I wouldn't jump to either of those conclusions.
How long has she been laying?
Can you post a video of her?
I'd check her out tho.
