    Ok so I got a 3 year old chicken from a friend while I wait for my little guys to grow up. I put 2 of my bigger little chicks in with her during the day and then put them in at night. She pretty much ignores them unless they get close to her food.

    The guy I got her from said she likes to sit on her eggs so be careful I have had her a week and no eggs any ideas??


    Thank you

    Chickens hate having their environment disrupted. It can take anywhere from a few days to weeks for them to resume egg laying.
