My 22 week old buff orpington, Maisie, only started laying on or about Sept. 14th. I have 4 that just started laying, so not quite sure how regular she is. I get 2 to 4 eggs a day. I noticed yesterday she was in the nest box around 9am, then kept checking and she was still there at 1pm. I shooed her out and saw she was sitting on all 4 eggs. Today, I went out there about 9am and she was in the nest box. It is almost 4:30 and she is still in there! I have checked on her several times and took her out once to have water and food, but she went right back in. I checked and there are no eggs in the nest box. Yet she insists on sitting in there. I'm assuming she's too new at egg laying to be broody...am I wrong? Should I be more concerned that she is having trouble laying? She's so new at it, that I thought it would be normal to be laying inconsistently. So my question is...leave her be or pull her out of the nest? Should I be doing something to make sure she's okay? Thanks in advance.
