I have a very awkward hen who tries her very best to escape from the run and hide her eggs. It's very frustrating because when I have managed to find some they are really nice and tasty. We fenced off a corner of the garden where they can't escape but we find them in next doors field at the usual time she lays. After she comes back I've noticed jackdaws flying into the field could they be eating the eggs? I tried to encourage her to lay in the hut by adding lots of hay and a nest box but they all were terrified of it and wouldn't go inside. Lately, her comb is paler and I was wondering whether she might have stopped laying altogether. We have added young hens to the flock and I'm worried they'll start copying her and laying elsewhere.
