Hi All, Quick question, we have 8 hens, all around 18-25 weeks old. 3 RIR, 1 Barred, 1 EE, 1 Leghorn and 2 Silkies. Anyway, no eggs as of yet! Our chickens are allowed to roam our yard all day long, which is large and has lots of hiding spaces. I pretty much know their hangout spots. Just wondering if they lay an egg in a place other than the coop will they sit on the egg for any extended period of time? I am asking because when I go out to see them in the backyard, they all come running because I usually have treats for them. ANd if one is missing and sitting on an egg I will notice. I have noticed slight behavior change in some hens, so I thought an egg was coming soon but I have yet to find any. Thanx in advance.
