This is a first.. I have a 7 month old hen that stopped laying 4 weeks ago. She refuses to let the others in the nests" 3", to lay. Tonight, as I was tucking the girls in for their "nite nite", She was hogging the nests, as usual. As I went to pick her up, gently of course, she stood up... and squatted down, and sucked up one of the eggs with her vent as fast as she could... What the...? I have NEVER seen this behavior before... Is she possesed? I think we might need an " EGGSORCISM" or something... any suggestions? If this doesn't stop, than it's fresh bbq soon.
