::)Good Morning! We just finished separating a brooding hen from her favorite nesting cube. We noticed she was sitting on the nest all day and all night. (This happened once before, same chicken? don't know) We put her in a seperate encloseure for a day or two. This seems to cure her and we just returned her to the flock. We only have 7 laying hens. Why does this happen? She gets all frumpy, feathers are all plumped out and she just sits there. We're going to put a band on her leg this time, see if it's the same chicken that brooded once before. Any suggestions?
