So lets see, some brief history: I recently adopted my 5 hens from moving into a new house, and the old owners asking if i want them... I love them! 5 is so easy to take care of, and their coop they have has one big space for a nest, which up until this point all 5 hens have been laying in daily (well actually i get 4 eggs/day)....In the last 4 days, i have a hen who insists on not getting up off the nest, and i have been reaching under her to get eggs, which i still collect 4....however its getting time to change the straw, and im not comfortable picking her up and moving her incase shes ill, etc? i have been waiting a couple days, thinking she will get out...is it safe to pick her up? shes not aggressive, i jus feel like im disturbing nature. we live in hawaii, and there is plenty roosters that they have access to, and spend 12 hrs/ day outside their pen...i feed them scratch mix, and crumbles...if thats any help.... I love this site, but lack time to filter through each post and find the answer to my questions, and am open to any kind of direction to other posts.
