    She has been in the nest box all day and that is unusual. Is it the right time of the year for that?

    No it's not really the right time but she could be. Is she making real odd noises when you get near her?

    I can not think of a reason not to let her! I love CHICKENS! But, will the other chickens be a problem for her?
