hey y’all, I have an almost 3 yr old Black/Narragansett hen who laid eggs in Dec and now from April to May. My flock free range/pasture and At first she was laying eggs in an enclosed dog kennel in our barn but then made a hidden nest under the cover of juniper bushes and it was well hidden. It was still very cold in April so once I found her nesting area I collected her eggs to incubate some. She’s been laying for a month now and I made her a new nest similar to the surroundings of where her original nest was. I made the nest in the barn out of dry leaves and juniper branches I cut off. I kept her closed in the barn and barnyard for a few days so she would start using her new nest and she’s laid 3 eggs so far. If I leave all her eggs in her nest will she set on them after she’s laid a sufficient amount? She’s hatched he’d own eggs last August but nothing since? Hoping someone else may have some experience in broodiness with a black hen? She’s still laying eggs after 30days! Thanks for your help!
