Hello everyone! I am new here & new to owning chickens & I am a bit stuck. One of our hens stopped laying eggs shortly after we adopted her - that was about 6 months ago now! We (my neighbours & I) came to the conclusion that she must be broody as she'd sit in the nesting box for a while & then would move on to the rabbit's hutch & sit like she was laying but, not producing anything. We had one gentleman try something he says stops the brooding so they will give you eggs but, it didn't work so, I finally went out & bought 6 eggs. She sat on them last night because I looked her in this spare rabbit hutch with them but, she wouldn't sit on them today. She, Snow White, is eating, scratching & everything else but, not laying. What do I do? ANd what do I do with these eggs now?????? I am freaking out that they eggs will die since they have had one night of heat & practically nothing all day so far but, I am not sure what to do other than try to hold her on the eggs & that just isn't good for any of us involved! Somehow we have 4 chickens & lucky to get 1 egg a day. Snow white is by what I was told now about a yr & half as well as Pinkie, then we have Caramel who is about 7 months old & the last one, Shelly, I just bought two days ago when I bought the eggs. As far as I have read they should all still be in prime laying. I understand that we are in Autumn down here but, Snow White stopped laying during the latter part of Summer. Looking forward to you wisdom!
