    About 2 1/2 weeks ago one of my Nankin
    hens started sitting in her nesting
    box all day and night. Although nankins are VERY broody birds I am almost 100% sure it's not because she
    is not protective, she does not have
    any eggs and I noticed when one of my
    Mille Fleur hens was broody she left
    big amounts of poop in one spot (If
    that makes sense.) and she isn't. She
    was born on May 3 this year so she not even a year old yet. I have noticed a bit
    of weight loss compared to her sister.
    I have recently moved her into the
    downstairs of her coop with her sister
    which gives her more light and room.

    If you have any suggestions on what it
    could possibly be please feel free to
    reply.

    I forgot to mention her feces
    look fairly normal ( maybe
    a bit on the dry side) It is
    difficult to get her to eat
    but I can usually get her to.
    Otherwise she seems fairly
    healthy she is prening her
    feathers as normal and she
    seems fairly perky, but I am
    concerned about her weight
    loss.
