    my hen has been sitting on a couple of eggs for a long time. She rarely gets off ( I knw this b'cuz the feed pan at the other end off the coop is still filled most times when i check). I saw her off her nest only once and hurried right back on when she saw me. The problem is that she was walking feebly and slow and i am wondering if this is normal or if it would cause future problems? Any suggestions?

    When she hits 30 days, you can start to worry. Otherwise ignore her. She knows what she's doing bgetter than we do.

    I just finished totally stressing through my first hatch neither of my hens took a bite of food the entire time, I doubt they drank either.
