She started laying eggs there and we have removed them. We went away for 10 days and had someone set to collect the eggs and fresh water for us, but they caught that nasty virus going around. Our set up is set for two weeks feed and water. Just in case something happens to us I know our animals will be ok. (our 2 dogs & chicken). So we thought we're ok.
Any way, if I move the nest she would go back to lay eggs up there again untill she has a bunch.
She cried when I took her last eggs. She was nesting on one egg. Two days later she was nesting again on the shelf. I'm think wow she's reallywants to nest, here she is on one egg again. Low and behold four of my hens laid eggs for her there up on the shelf and she had her one egg in with theirs.
We came bach home from vacation to her laying about 12 eggs. She went to get water and food and We removed the hens eggs. How can I move the nest? She is determine.
I think every time she leaves to get water and food a hen is laying an egg in with her eggs.
