I thought I lost my bantam easter egger almost a month ago, and today I found her tucked into the goat barn behind a bale of hay on top of 15 eggs. I couldn't see anything by candeling, so I broke one - just a rotten egg. Same with 2 more I tried. My rooster was about 10 times her size, so I don't know if they were more than "friends". Anyway, I tried to put her back in the coop, because temps have been way below freezing and I can't believe she's managed out there by herself. But they all started pecking her - even some 2 month olds! (I have 3 other hens, and 4 babies another hen recently hatched). Now I have her inside in a box with the rest of her probably rotten eggs. ANy advice? Night-time re-introduction? Does that work?
