I have a 9 month old orpington hen that refuses to get out of her box even though she does not still have an egg in it! It's the craziest thing. I took the egg out almost a week ago and she will not get out of the darn box or even lay another egg! I was worried she wasn't eating so every day I take her out of the box and put her in front of the waterer and feeder. She'll eat and drink, make a few noises which I can only assume is her indignation towards me and will then go back to the same exact box. When I go up to her she starts ruffling up her feathers at me and cackling. Is something wrong with her? I would let her try to hatch some one elses egg but I have children unfortunately that like to go in there and pick up eggs and I can't get them to leave an egg with her. Of course they are only 3 years old! Lol!
