I have a pekin hen that is acting broody, I think. She is sitting in the area that she normally lays eggs. I started to put two hen eggs under her but after a while she left for the whole day so I removed them. She went 2-3 days without laying an egg. I almost thought she was egg bound but she just keeps sitting on the area she normally lays her once a day egg. She keeps sitting but she isn't sitting on anything. I remove the egg every morning if she lays. Has anyone experienced this? Is she broody or just confused LOL?
Oh second question. My new ducks are 7 weeks old. How old before I can let them free range with having a male and female breeding pair on the premises. Now, the drake is stalking the new pekins (not sure if they are all female or not) through the chain link fence. He puts his head through the links at them LOL
