I have a pair of silkies, and a trio of bb reds. The silkie hen has been laying eggs and we take them. Today she got in her spot that she lays which is not in the coop. They free roam. Instead of laying the egg and moving, she has sat there all day! And now it's night and she's still there. My question is.. Since she only has the one egg today, will she continue to sit on just the one egg? Or will she lay more? And, do I start counting days to egg May hatch from today? Pretty much, I've never had a hen lay and don't don't what or how many chicks to expect!! So PLEASE help!!!!!
