I have two ladies who won't budge. Both are 1 year old. I am a new chicken steward so this is a new experiece for me. I have a couple q's: They haven't laid in two weeks. When the behavior began I took the eggs right away. When I kick them out of the coop they start pecking scratching and drinking immediately, run the length of the cooop three or four times, roll in dust, and go right back to sitting on their heinies. They are not eating much. Is it normal for brooky chickens to stop laying eggs? Is it harmful to let this run its course? Or Should I continue kicking them out or just let them stay put? Thanks a million!
