I have 3 BTW Japanese hens that sat on one nest and hatched 10 chicks. The chicks are almost 6 weeks old now. The 2 young hens have taking the chicks away from the older hen. But the older hen still clucks to the chicks but she stays away from them because she will be attacked otherwise. Well this morning I found 2 eggs in the nest I don't think they were there this morning. My guestions are. Who layed the eggs? Will hens lay eventhough they have young chicks? Can a older hen lay 2 eggs a day when before she only layed 1 eggs every two days?
