    Hi all,
    I have 2 ISA Browns and one Light Sussex. The 2 Isas lay but the L.Sussex just sits on their eggs all day and does nothing? What can I do to get her to lay?

    It sounds like you have a broody! I would recommend giving her a clutch of eggs to hatch for you. If that is not in the cards right now, get some fake eggs for her to sit on. That way you can get to your fresh eggs after your other two lay them. I don't think you are going to get a broody hen to lay you any eggs until she is done being broody! Good luck! [​IMG]
