In the Brooder
- May 22, 2012
My 17 month old hen was 'outcasted' by her flock (we thought she was sick but she wasn't); we put her in a cage in garage so the flock would stop picking on her; and then found her a new home. She was laying eggs daily in her cage in the garage. She hasn't layed an egg in her new home and it has been over a month! Her new home is free ranging with another chicken and she seems happy. The 2 hens stay in their garage at night. They do not have a coop except the garage. Do you think that is why she isn't laying? B/c she has no nesting box or coop? I wasn't sure what to tell the new owners. Their other chicken is younger and not laying either.
