In the Brooder
- Mar 25, 2017
i have 1 and a half year old pekins. I get an egg a day from each of them, all year round! They are very consistent except a few hick ups here and there. I noticed my one stopped laying about 3 or 4 days ago. I always see her in her nest, but never an egg. She goes back and forth to her nest in the morning and will sit, but no egg. I haven’t experienced brooding so I’m not sure if that is what she could be doing? I don’t have any drakes, just the 2 females. I feel her lower belly and around her butt hole to make sure i don’t feel any hardness or eggs. Her belly feels normal and she doesn’t show signs of discomfort. She acts her happy self and eats and drinks and swims! Not sure if I should take her to the vet, or if this is just something that happens after a while. Could she be done laying eggs this young? Someone please help!
