We have six (four old enough to lay) hens and 3 drakes and they all love playing in the pool and being silly ducks. I have a dog igloo out there and they lay in that. Well this morning when I went to feed them and let them out for the day, I only got three eggs. So one didn't lay, they don't always lay ever day. Then I went to the chicken chores and about 10 minutes later went to feed the goats and when I did I heard this weird sound in the compost pile. It is enclosed on three sides with chicken wire. I investigated and there was one of our Swedish hens that had made a nest and laid an egg in it. Now she didn't cover it or anything but it is definitely a nest. Usually if they are out early they just lay anywhere in the yard they feel like. My question is, do you think she may go broody on me and if I put some other duck eggs in there, will that make her go broody faster. Also I have noticed over the last couple of days, she is not interested in going into the pool and "playing" with the drake. She kind of hangs back and just observes. Any thoughts??????
