My hen has become broody and laying on the gineua fowl eggs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My chickens and gineua fowls share a same coop n both were laying in a same nest inside the coop. I used to pick up the gen eggs for eating purpose while leaving the gineua eggs behind. Now for the last few dats one of my hens has become broody n sitting on the gineua eggs. The thing which is disturbing me now is that after that all of my hens n gineua fowls have stopped laying eggs ir they are laying them at some unknown place. Please guide me how to make some other nest for them so that tgey start laying eggs again.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Is that the only nesting area or box  - or do you have others?    Maybe they cannot get into the nesting box so are laying their eggs elsewhere.  If they free range, you may never find their outdoor nests unless you follow them.

You could consider moving your broody. A plastic basin with sand in it will serve well enough. Some broodies are more concerned with brooding to worry about being moved, where others do not like it one bit, and will leave the eggs. I put my broody in a nest on a shelf in the coop where the other birds do not lay and it works well enough for me.
