Went down yesterday to collect eggs and a hen was in a nest box. I left her be and did what I needed to and moved on. Went down 6 hours later, it was dark, to shut the girls in the coop for the night and I see the chicken still in there. I prodded her with a stick and she didn't move or make a sound. I called hubby to take care of it when he got home cause I didn't want the kids (ages 5 & 6) to see her if she was dead. (I really thought she was!) Long story short, hubby got home and checked and sure enough, she was still in the nest box. At least this time, she made noises for him and talked back to him. He got her out of the nest box and sure enough, there was an egg under her. Now what? I have no roosters and have no inclination for babies. Is this gonna happen all day every day? Will my 5 other girls start doing this? These chickens are almost 6 months old. Thank you!
