How do I keep hen from hiding her eggs?


Aug 26, 2019
I have a game hen that is always hiding her eggs. She will only lay in the coop if she has at least 8 eggs that she has already played there. She hides them all over the yard and then tries to go broody. Im worried that she's going to go broody and I won't be able to find her but raccoons or possums will. She's not really tamed and she is scared to death of me. She was a rescue I got and is deathly scared of people. Id like to be able to collect her eggs but every time I take some she just abandons her nest and hides her eggs.

How bbig an area does she have? Does she free range all the time? Perhaps she needs to be confined to a small run adjacent to her coop. Put golf balls or fake eggs in the nests, she should then lay her eggs there. After a while this will become her habit but it may take time. Good luck!
