So I have a Orpington cross who has broody tendencies. I went to visit my parents for a week because I'm 26 weeks pregnant and won't have another chance to see them until you second son is born. I left my well meaning husband in charge of the chickens while I was gone. Before, I was getting about 6 eggs a week from her. For two days in a row, my husband was letting them out into the yard without securing the door to the coop open and they were not able to get in to lay their eggs. (I only have two laying hens right now) my white leghorn laid her egg in the run and went right back to laying in the nest once he figured out how to secure the door. I have not found an egg from my orphington. It's been over a week. Today, I left them in their run until about noon and she laid her egg under the coop instead of the nest so I know she's laying them somewhere. I have checked every place I could think of where she might be hiding her nest and along the fence the see if she was hiding them there. I don't mind her collecting a nest if she wants to sit, since they are fertile and her last clutch are now almost laying age. But I don't want her to start and sit in a place that I will not be able to get to her or keep her protected. How can I find her nest and get her to start laying in the nest box again?
