If you moved the egg, she will most likely abandon it. You need to leave the egg where it was laid. She should lay her second egg today/tonight. Where ever she lays the second egg is where she will sit. Put the first egg under her. Hens don't normally sit on the eggs until both have been laid. Some will sort of hover over the first one and some will just about ignore the first one all together until the second one is laid.

Did she lay the egg in a nest bowl? Has she ever laid an egg in a nest bowl? I can give any of my birds that lay an egg in the floor a nest bowl because they recognize them. If she's never seen or used one before........I don't know if she would except it or not. Where is the cock bird in all of this? Did she not lay the egg in her and her mates nest box?

I would say wait until she lays her second egg. Where ever that is, is where she wants to be and where you need to leave her. If it's in a different box than the one the cock bird is in, you COULD try locking him in the box with her, but you'll have to make sure he's not going to beat up on her. He should know she's laying eggs and be willing to take his turns sitting on them. Do you have any dummy (plastic/wooden)eggs?

I think you just need to let her be where she wants to be and stop worrying so much. I don't think she is worrying.
