    My hen is acting very broody; won't leave the nest unless I pick he up, but she will eat and dink just fine... behaviors is normal except for the nest issue... she refuses to leave.
    She was egg bound and nearly dies a little over a week ago- not sure if she has layed any since that period. Is this normal after being egg bound?
