So in my rouen pen, I have a trio of rouens (1 drake, 2 hens) the drake and 1 of the hens are almost a year old, the other hen is 6 months old. I've been getting one egg a day from that pen for 2 days now. I'm not really sure who is laying it, but I think its the young one. She laid it underneath the chicken boxes the first day, and the second day in the middle of the coop, but she buried it this time. So when I went in the gather the chicken eggs, I steped on the duck egg, and it broke. Then the chickens ate the egg. The young hen came in, and was searching in the straw like she was worried, then totally freaked out and started running out of the coop quacking real loud. Was she worried that her egg ran away? Is she making a nest? And if she is broody, can I take away her eggs, and give her another ducks eggs? Will she be ok with the rooster and drake around her babies? I'm not prepared for broody hens! It isnt spring! Help!
