It's just the one hen.. She hasn't laid since June. I thought maybe she was just hiding them because she did that a lot but I've been all over the yard and found no eggs. I've checked all the possibilities.. She has plenty of water, food etc. She may be stressed but I don't think she is because she seems rather perky aside from her sassiness. It's a little cold now so I understand she may not be laying because of that but the fact that she hasn't laid since June has me a little worried. She doesn't appear sick or egg bound. The other problem is that I've caught her eating the other hens eggs (who are all still laying) a few too many times. It's possible she lays and then eats her eggs but I've been watching them closely and I never see her go anywhere to lay. Since she has started this habit I've been checking for eggs more often and getting to them before she does but if I have to go out somewhere and I come back she has devoured them. She started this behavior once before but I managed to get her to stop by using the typical tricks-fake eggs, golf balls etc but now she's at it again and the tricks don't seem to be working anymore. I'm thinking about seperating her from the other hens and trying the tricks again and maybe they'll work? The only thing is she's so attached to one of the other hens I'm afraid she may get stressed if I seperate her. I mean she's so attached that she'll lay down outside the coup while the other hen is laying and wait for her. She freaks out and bawks really loud if she loses site of the other hen. It's kind of strange but I'm new at this chicken thing so maybe it's normal idk. Any advice? What would you do? Culling her is something I definitely DON'T want to do because she's been more of a pet to my kids but if I can't get her to stop is there really any other option other than giving her to some kind vegan? Thanks everyone for any advice offered!
