    My chicken has been sitting in her nesting area for 3 days. She is alert and doesn't appear sick. She has no egg under her. How do I check for a possible stuck egg?

    Wash your hand, lubricate a finger, and insert it into her vent to see if you can feel a stuck egg.
    It doesn't sound like she is egg bound, it sounds like she is broody.

    Did you try that?
    I agree it sounds like she's broody.
