I just wanted to let you guys know that my chook must be happy again, So thanks to all that gave me some advice. As you know one of my chooks, Andrew(the children named them,lol) has not been laying and is rather pecked and bald. she has also been sleeping in our outhouse for the last 2 weeks. But the last few nights has snuck off know where to be seen ? well tonight after much searching with the children I found her all snuggled up sitting on 3 eggs. so at last she is laying. yey. I am so happy. Her feathers are starting to grow back too.Bonus.
