Howdy all, Exactly a week ago I posted about my australorp - I thought she might be egg bound. It was a nervy day for me, as I kept feeling her up looking for an egg and giving her pelvis a bit of a massage, but I couldnt feel an egg. At the end of the day she improved, and I felt she had been constipated. Since then, NO EGGS. Its been over a week now and she would usually lay one or two every other day. She sits on her favourite nest in the garden all day and refuses to go to bed, she has to be picked up and carried to the night time shed. All very new because before this she wouldnt let me touch her. I cant feel an egg around her vent, if I go get her out for a drink and some food she picks around for awhile, then suddenly flaps and bounces around and clucks like mad then runs back to her favourite nest to sit and sulk! One idea I had was that there is a rooster next door and she seems to be talking to him - when she has her mad clucking moments he crows to her, could this be affecting her egg laying at all or making her broody?
