Our JG is usually out and about happily but she has been in the nestbox for at least 6 hours. No egg and when the other two went to the coop to roost she stayed in the nestbox; just now when I went to lock their door I found her still there. She hates to be picked up but I brought her inside so I could see/examine her. As soon as I put her on the floor to see if she could walk (which she could) she took a HUGE ...dump. She was clucking sort of unhappily and seemed to be trying to drop a bit more...a few small bits of droppings came out; the first one was whitish on top and ordinary looking, the other looked normal, if small. But something is amiss and I'm not sure what. how do I check for a bound egg? Or any other thoughts? I just carried her back to the coop and coaxed her up onto the roost with the other 2. Maybe she is just having an "off day" and I am over-reacting. She is 2 yrs. old and a good layer (and does take a long time to lay...often in the nestbox quite awhile which is why I wasn't concerned earlier) but never sleeps in it. thanks for any input.
