Hi my name is Edwena. I live in Bundaberg Queensland Australia. We have 2 labradors and 5 bantam hens as pets and egg providers ( when they lay).my girls are just 12 mths old. They have just gone through a moult. Didnt lay many eggs. Then we had suppressive heat and humidity. Didnt lay any eggs. Summers here can be endless days of 30 to 40 degrees with very high humidity. The girls are free range all day and mooch wherever they want to. They dont lay many eggs and dont always lay in their house. 2 of the girls are always sitting in their beds. I have to shoo them out to have a feed and a stretch. Is it normal for them to spend so much time sitting on nothing???
