I wasn't sure where to put this so here it is! I have a cochin bantam hen who was sitting on her nest two years ago now... and a dog attacked her. ( I had several choice words for it's owner) and she abandoned her nest. The best part, is... her nest was in the GARAGE of my house! Anyway, she hasn't laid since, this spring I've seen the roo mating, and I put a nesting box right by where they roost, I put her in it, and nothing, she shows no interest in it. Anything I can do? Is she just destined to be just a pet for the rest of her life?
