In the Brooder
- Sep 4, 2013
We have a 7 month old blue splash wyandotte hen who went broody about three weeks ago. She still come out to eat and drink so I have just been keeping an eye on her. She finally seems to be getting over it. However, since she has gone broody, my three other hens (all around 1 year old) have stopped laying. I find the occasional egg in the nest box but we have been over 2 weeks now with no eggs to speak of. I feed them an organic layer crumble and they got lots of meal worm treats, scraps, sunflower seeds, oyster shells and crushed egg shells. I also just bought a new coop this weekend so our girls would have more room but now I am concerned the stress of it might keep them from laying longer. They do seem to like the new coop and all the room though. Any suggestions to get everyone up and going again? Thanks!
