In the Brooder
- Apr 30, 2011
I got a mating pair of barred rocks a couple of weeks ago. The lady I bought them from said that the hen should be laying any week now. However, when I go to the coop in the morning to let them out the rooster is in the nesting box and the hen is on the roost! How am I ever going to get any eggs?! Are my chickies gender confused or what? Should I physically put the hen in her nesting box and move the rooster out of them , or just let them work it out on their own? I only have the two of them so separating them is not an option. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
