    My hens been having trouble laying her egg since yesterday afternoon im worrying as earlier i tried to find the problem by looking in the vent i didnt feel any egg, but just the long time since shes laid im worried since its been so long. i saw her in the nesting box at night too.. which concerned me that much more.

    Its a possibility but I don't think so. When she moves she does have her feathers flare up. But she is running away from everybody everybody else is pecking her. Which is weird.

    Normal behavior towards a broody hen. Is she all fluffed up and clucking as she runs around?
