Well all 5 of the Blue Americanas I put in with the most current batch of Chocolate Orpingtons hatched. I plan on hatching two Olive Eggers in the next batch. I have a Black Americana hen with my chocolate Orpingtons and she is laying.

No. sorry. I have Blue Americanas that are ready to lay. I have chocolate Orpingtons chicks and eggs. I have French Black Copper Maran eggs. At the moment those are the breeds I have available.

O no, I haven't had any problem with predators getting the traps.  This is good to know.  Thank you.

Nothing is trivial.

You may not have that issue - others haven't. That's just what happened for me. I keep intending to try attaching them to something to keep them from being dragged off. For a couple of them it wasn't all spilled, and with rain, there is some small amount of liquid in them, and wouldn't you know - they are catching flies! So I keep meaning to re-fill them with something stinky and add more water. 

 

They do really stink just from the packaged "attractant", though, be warned. I don't know if you process your own birds, but someone on another thread suggested adding bits of liver or heart or whatever to them instead of the purchased attractant, and that worked well for him (though obviously totally stinky). Haven't tried that yet, but plan to save some from next cull...

 

One option would be to dispose of poop in a compost pile far away from the coop (a good idea anyway), and put the fly trap there - if it DID attract critters, at least it wouldn't be attracting them to the coop...
