    My BR hen went eggbound about 2 weeks ago. It took only a few days to break her of the habit. Recently she's began sitting in the nest again, it looks like she wants to lay. But there hasn't been an egg. Is she eggbound and how would I know? Or is it just that she's post-broody and not laying yet (it's been 1 1/2 weeks since she stopped brooding)?
