    No eggs for two weeks

    My one girl is not laying any eggs. She will sit in her nesting box but leaves nothing. I haven’t seen any form of molting either. The temperature here in South Jersey has been mild 40-50’s. So I’m not sure if it is the weather change. Her brother which is a special needs rooster is not with her...

    Roosting

    It’s funny, my silkies can fly and they decided to roost during the day and nestle together on the floor at night. Thanks for your input.

    Integrating new pullets

    Do you need to separate new chickens to a flock or can you just put them in with the others and let them hash out their pecking order? I have two girls that I got about a month ago and I was offered two more from the same flock, so would I need to separate them first?

    Roosting

    Do chickens need to roost? When my chickens are in the coop they never sit on the roost they just cuddle with each other on the bedding. Is this normal?

    Diatomaceous earth

    Is DE good for your chickens and is it truly safe to put in a dust Bath? I read different, that it is and that it isn’t.
