hi all I am having a difficult time with my chooks! I am new this year to poultry and i currently have : 2 geese 3 ducks 3 bantams 4 hybrids 1 swedish appenzeller My hybrids and appenzeller are in one run and my bantams another the hybrids lay daily most of the time (although only 3 types of egg, pretty sure my black rock doesnt lay as i am unsure of her age, thinks she pretty old) the appenzeller doesnt lay but then i dont have a clue if its a he or she atm! the bantams are my isue currently i have one flufy little thing (pekin?) one bantam rhode island and my cockbird is a grey purebred something lol one of the bantams lays but only just started so i am hoping the other will too as both were apprently in full lay last year. She always lays in the run rather than the house. here comes the issue I put her fertile egg in the hybrids nest box as one is showing signs of broodiness next day its gone not in sight at all today i see shes laid one in the run again i put egg in the hybrids run next day its moved to the opposite nest box but i did read they can move them around. theres another egg in the bantams run but i am in a rush so figure ill wait until i get back to move it, i was gone an hour get back and its gone vanished not a sign of it and also no sign of any intruders my conclusion, either my chickens are messing with me for fun because they are bored or there is a greater evil at work! any help or advice at all? very confused!
