The last three days I've had to kick her out of the nest box when I collect the eggs. This morning Tuppence had to climb in next to her to lay, and even after that Penny was still sitting there on the three eggs from this morning. She's staying in there for at least 2 - 3 hours, because I collect the eggs at around 9am and she's already in the box when I look out the window at about 6 or 7am. The weather is warming up here so I wonder if that has something to do with it? If I just keep kicking her out of the nest each morning so she can't access it again until bedtime will that do the trick? She's fine and happy once I get her away from the nest, so I don't think she's in need of serious "broody breaking", but it's totally out of character for her to stay in there so long. It's funny though, when I pick her up out of the nest she's as docile as anything and lets me get my hand underneath her to lift her out, and barely ruffles her feathers when I place her on the ground outside. Usually she won't let me pick her up and has never ever squatted for me. I can only ever catch her if she's already on the roost for the night. Does being in a warm nest on a hot day make them sleepier?
