    Okay I have a hen that has been sitting in her nest box for 2 days. Is this a good sign that she is broody? If so, will she continue to lay an egg daily? Do I need to do anything to keep her away from the other hens? How many days does it take for an egg to hatch? Any help will be greatly appreciated![​IMG]
