Has she pulled out her chest feathers and spread herself out in the nesting box? Does she tell you off if you try and pick her up? I'm no expert but it sounds like she's broody to me.

I've got two broody hens. I tried to stop them from sitting but they were having none of it. We've now been given some fertilised eggs so fingers crossed we'll have chicks soon.
