I have a white cochin who's been laying for short while, lately shes been sitting on the nest for very long periods of time only during the day, at night shes roosting with the other chickens. Is she going broody? I collect the eggs and only leave one in the box and shes sitting on the one egg.

Would guess she's hiding...or she may be ill.
How big is your coop and urn, in feet by feet, and how many birds total?
Give her a good going over...looks for swollen belly, funky vent, bugs, any abnormalities.
Send some time observing the flocks behavior.

She's a beautiful healthy bird went to check last night and she's definitely broody she stayed on the nest all night and when I went to check for eggs from the other hens she got all huffy puffy on me so i decided to let her sit on some eggs
