    hello
    my 3 year old hen was just pooing and i notice that there was good poop- but then there was the clear stuff from the egg and also tiny little bit of the yolk,
    what should i do ?? she has not layed for a while like maybe 7-10 days .she does not lay frequenty since maybe 2 month.
    ans around what age do they stop laying ?
    thanks for any addvise
    sandra
    p.s she is doing otherwise fine- she eats drinks runs - so nothing unusual

    That is odd give her something to boost her energy like a worm or beetle if you have none then just watch her for about 5-10 minutes and also they do not stop laying until age 4 or 5 how many eggs would she normaly lay a week?

    well in winter time there was like nothing - and they she layed for about few month every other day.
    and now since maybe 2 month its like rare....
    she eats bugs and worms- since she roams my huge back yard all day long. they run free :)
