Stationary Hen

It's been over 12 hours and my beloved hen, Blondie, hasn't moved out of
the nesting box. Her feathers make her appear all puffed up. And I noticed
the red comb on top of her head is shriveled up, not plump like her sisters.
We've had the girls for over a year and I've never noticed this behavior before.
I'm very concerned. Please advise. Many thanks.
Does she look egg-bound? Check her vent and abdomen for hardness. If she does appear to be egg-bound, place her in a warm bath to loosen up her insides.
K-12 Chickens,
I'm assuming Blondie is egg-bound because she only visits
the nesting box when she is ready to lay an egg. I will
put her in a warm bath. Thank you for your help.
