    No give her time to recover and eat and get off the nest for a while! Give her a break. You can lose a hen who sets too long.

    Hi Justin,
    Sounds like a good hen. Give her lots of good food and water and let her enjoy life for the winter.
    Winter is coming and she needs to build up some fat reserve. Take good care of her!
    God bless!
