My Nelly laid 11 eggs in row (her first eggs), then yesterday went to the nesting box, came out squawking, but no egg. I thought maybe she took the day off even though I was a little nervous about the whole situation (can you tell I'm an over-protective chicken-newbie?) Today she went into the nesting box and stayed there for an hour, but no egg again. Yesterday she seemed fine after it, but today she seems.... sad? Mopey? Just not herself. How would I know if she is truly egg bound or if she's just taking some time off from laying? I palpated her abdomen but didn't really notice any egg shape... not that I really know what feels normal (after all, how often am I massaging chicken bellies?) Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
