Been looking for weeks now and no eggs 3 rir 2 buff orps. Dolly one of my rir has been acting strange and making a lot of noise in the morinings but I could not find any eggs. Today I looked under the ramp and found 4 wonderful brown eggs. How can I get them to lay in the nests that I made for them? One other kind of dumb question about 5 days ago ruby one of my rir passed away. She was always small and never very strong. She hurt her leg and wasnt able to recover. Now my rir are mean to everybody but me they eat out of my hand jump on my arms and make all kinds of ruckus when I come out. The day after I got home from work I found ruby at the door of the coop just laying there. When I got to her all I could do was just pet her and tell her to get up over and over. Me being mr macho I looked around to see if anybody could see me then wiped my eyes and took care of ruby. My question is is this normal for me to get so attached to my girls?
