    Why has my Leghorn stopped laying?

    My 1yr old Leghorn started laying eggs last August-ish. Then once daylight started getting shorter in December, she & my other girls stopped laying. Well, here it is April and everyone has returned to normal laying schedule except her! She is my smallest hen, could that have anything to do with...

    Quail stopped laying eggs

    One of my quails laid a thin shelled egg about 15 days ago and she hasn't laid since. The other one is screaming every time it lays an egg, and tonight the one who stopped laying screamed two times the same way but there is no egg. What should I do?

    Hen never laid an egg

    8 months ago I bought 10 production red chicks; 1 died the next day, I figured stress. At about 3 months of age, I saw a couple of my birds had 'moco' (mucous) (respiratory illness, no vet to diagnose what variety), and treated the flock with the antibiotics recommended by the feed store /...

    Is my duck egg bound or brooding?

    i have 1 and a half year old pekins. I get an egg a day from each of them, all year round! They are very consistent except a few hick ups here and there. I noticed my one stopped laying about 3 or 4 days ago. I always see her in her nest, but never an egg. She goes back and forth to her nest in...

    Does My Chicken Have Egg Binding?

    Hello, I have a Barnevelder who is about a year. I haven't seen her lay an egg for a while now, and a few days ago I felt under her stomach for an egg and I think I felt one. I waited to see if she was just taking longer than normal to lay her egg, but she didn't lay one. And today she was in...
