Has anyone had this? I have a buff orp that is just finishing up and beginning hatch. I originally gave her six eggs, but she has sneaked in seven extras (or someone else squeezed in and laid and she took over. She's moved the hay aside and is flat like a pancake covering the eggs on a wooden floor of her box. I haven't interfered with her much. I found a full crop from time to time, so I THOUGHT she was getting off the nest to eat. I just found out she had a benefactor who was bringing food to her (but never thought to give her water so I wonder how long she's been without?!) She's got water now, chicks are starting to hatch, but when I moved her off the nest to pull shells and a dead chick, I set her down and she stayed pancake-flat. Her legs are splayed out and behind her. She did manage to get them under her enough to move a foot or so. Anyone ever see this happen? She's the first standard of my flock to go broody (normally I let silkies hatch for me) and also a good hen, about a year old, and I don't want to lose her. Any suggestions? Thanks!!!
