    My RIR has been in the nesting box for several hours and is still in there past dark with no egg. I petted her to try to get her to get up and get on the roost and she didnt move for awhile then finally got out of that box and went to another. It kind of sounds like she is wheezing but cant really tell if its actual wheezing or her just making noises.

    Well she may be going broody read the link below also if she doesn't have any of those signs well i would chek over her WHOLE body (look for mites ANYTHING could be gonig on) I look for runny noses if anything else happens I think you should separate her from the others so they don't get it too make sure she eats and drinks too.
