    Maybe she's in pain? Is she broody? Maybe she's having trouble passing something?

    Sorry don't know much about chicken behaviors, but that's what my first thoughts would be
     
  3. She might be egg bound, soak her in some water


    is she pooping/eating/drinking?

    Nothing ever became of it. The whole flock turned 20 weeks today. My Brahma Roo is starting to mount the hens and most of the time they don't care and just sit there till he lets them up......esp the RIR's

    My EE does the same thing. She lays eggs regulary and is just fine. I'm not really sure why she does it. Sometimes she'll do it while perched in the roost at night as well.
