Hen kicking eggs out!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi i have a sussex hen who for some reason keeps pulling eggs out of the nesting boxes, she doesn't break them or eat them in the process but i worry that it is just a matter of time before i do get broken and eaten eggs.

Can anyone help me with why she is doing this and how i can stop her?

Some do get vigorous when they are trying to get the nest just right. Is your hen younger, most grow out of it or settle a bit after they have been laying. Not much you can do about it, just collect eggs as frequently as you can.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
