Let me start from the beginning:

I went out and gave my three month old pullets their second favorite treat; rice. They all went nuts over it, but one. My leghorn, Beth, just sat in the corner. She was alive and well, but sitting in the corner. Is it possible that she's laying an egg or is she sick?! Help!

They aren't panting, but it's about 90 over here

Ended. No egg. Knew it was impossible. I had a moment of dumb worry.

Maybe the heat. Maybe they are about to go broody.
A 3 1/2 month pullet going broody over a nonexistent egg? And unfertilized anyways at that?

Oh yeah, I forgot that they are just 3.5 months old. That is a bit young to go broody. Earliest I have seen is 8 months.

But for future reference, they don't need fertilized eggs to go broody. It happens regardless of whether any of them have ever met a rooster.

Must have been the heat.

It was cooked. They always get leftovers.
