One of my buff orp hens has been laying for about 3 weeks. The last several days, she's been hanging out in the coop taking forever to lay an egg, and then sitting around on it for a long time after. She's probably in there for 2 or 3 hours every day. If I open the door to check on her, she makes a growly whirring noise and puffs her neck feathers all out. I can take the egg out from under her, but she still sits there for another hour or so before heading out to scratch for the rest of the day. She comes out every morning as usual, and roosts with the others at night, just this weird behavior around her egglaying. She was my first layer, and is the smallest and most gentle of my five. This afternoon I tossed her out of the coop after taking her egg, but then I felt kind of bad. Maybe she just needs some time to recover? I sure would if I squeezed something the size of my head outta there every day! Thoughts?
