    Hen staying in the nesting box

    Hi guys hope you're well My chicken started laying over 2 weeks ago, she's now constantly staying in the nest box all the time, just coming out for food and drink. I'm guessing she's broody, is there anything I should do or should I just let it run its course Thankyou

    Hey guys, This is my first post and I have a question/concern with one of my hens. She has had an issue of laying a soft egg that doesn't fully come out twice now. Meaning the soft shell(which is squishy, you can move/mold it without it cracking) gets stuck and hangs out of her vent? Has...

    Female or male

    Old chickens or stressed chickens?

    We inherited 4 chickens from our landlord last November. He claimed they were about 3y.o.

One of the...

Two at 21 weeks, two at 20 weeks, one at 17 weeks, and one at 15 weeks. I let them out of the coop/run for a few hours a day. One of...

    Rescued hen not laying

    Hi all! About a month ago, I rescued a d’Uccle Mille Fleurs hen that had somehow gotten into a neighbors back orchard. She looks fairly young, certainly not too old to lay, but she has yet to lay any eggs. Does anyone more familiar with the breed have any tips on encouraging laying?
