    I got a beautifal trio of snowy calls this april (4/2010). One hen layed an egg on the trip. she has also set on a batch of eggs (but they didnt hatch). She is to be 2 years old as of when I got them (the breeder that I got them from said so). The other hen & drake are to be 1 year old as of when I got them. I dont think the hen lays eggs... I only get 4-6 eggs a week & she wouldnt set no matter that ALL of my other hens were setting & there was extra nests. I dont know what I should do. Is it POSSIBLE that she dsnt lay eggs??

    If it is hot they may not lay. Give her lots of love and attention and help her to relax and give her more time.

    I have had her since april. She seems calm, I dont see any signs of stress. she dosnt like people so I just let her be and stay away from her. I have tryed to tame her but she just keeps running. Some just cant be tamed...
