We have 3 adult hens and 1 Roo together in our pen outside. 5 or 6 days ago, we noticed the mixed breed hen wouldn't get off the egglaying spot they've made in the corner...on the floor. She is still there-we've only seen her off once and then the other hens took turns guarding that spot til she came back. She is extremely grouchy and will not tolerate anyone touching her, or trying to look under her. I just lifted her up an inch or two with the end of a rake and there are at least 5 green eggs under her. (She lays brown eggs and the other 2 hens are EEs and lay green eggs.) What do we do? I have read about moving the broody hen and her eggs. I don't think we can-we went out after dark last night and tried to check under her and she was still just as bothered and let us know it by pecking us and screaming at us. So can we leave her there? Its a tough spot to try to haul her out of-its in the corner under the top nesting box and beside the last one on the bottom.(We have 2 rows of boxes-1 on top of the other... but they end about 6-8 inches from the wall on the bottom. She's in there. They love it there as its dark and private, but now its tough to think about getting her out of there if we have to. Any ideas? We've never done this before. We've only ordered all of our baby chicks from MM or adopted ones who needed a home. Lisa Update- day 19-excited people here and no time to just sit out there and watch her...will have to go out a few times to just check on her each day... she scarfed down a banana peice and the big pear section I left for her earlier today... poor thing must be hot-its in the 90s today...at least she's tucked away in a dark interior corner of her coop... New Update! Day 21--1st chick already hatched! I discovered it when I checked on her awhile ago...I lifted her front end up a bit to see the eggs and there was a dark wet chick uder her. I promptly set her back down and left her alone. I put up a cardboard wall around the bottom of the fencing, so that when the chick(s) start walking around they won't get out.I need to go get starter feed later-I know they are fine for a few days without it tho.
