Hi fellow members! I need help with an EE hen. I have a raised 6 EE's and 6 Buff Orphingtons from chicks purchased this past spring. I was given 3 rocks and 4 RReds that were already laying about two yrs old. I have a coop, an enclosed run and a fenced run. The fence is 6' but two of the EE's jump it daily. Several weeks ago the younger ones started to lay. My two jumpers had hid nests that they filled with eggs. One joined the elders in laying in the coop, the other refuses and continues to use a spot in the garden. I started to let the birds free range since the garden was done and some of the other hens found the garden nest and used it too. Now the EE hen won't leave the nest. It is empty and has been empty for two days. When approached she jumps off with her neck feathers flared and makes distressing clucking sounds. She will run get a drink of water or food and return and set. It has been pouring rain and she sits there. I physically put her in the coop at night. Is she broody or egg bound? Should I destroy the garden nest?
