    I have one hen that will not leave the coop. She is sitting there with her tail up in the air. Try to check her out and she really gets defensive. But I can see no eggs, is she about to lay one or is she just being weird.

    Sounds like she is Broody.. It means that she wants to hatch eggs out...
