    We have a beautiful americana dat is hiding her eggs. We have tracked her down but the grass and tag allders make it impossible to find her until shes done then she jumps up on branches and squaks till we find her. is there any way to get her to lay with the other hens? Iwant to seethose colored eggs.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I had the same problem, other members of byc advised me to keep the chickens in the coop for about 3 days or so. If she is in the coop and needs to lay she will go in the nesting boxes. I did it and none of my girls lay outside anymore. They free range daily but return to the coop to lay their eggs. Good Luck!![​IMG]
