    My buff orpington (about 1.5 years old) has been sitting in her coop in laying position for i think 2 days now. the other 2 hens have been sleeping on a roost i have outside of the coop in the run.

    Anyone know what is going on with her?? Please let me know if you have any ideas. She is the best! [​IMG]

    What kind of symptoms does she have?
    Could she just be broody?
    Is she on eggs?
    Is she eating?
    Have you tried removing her from nest to see what her behavior and movement are like?
