    My brother gave me the pair. The hen has layed 1 egg over a month ago but stopped. Is there anything else I could do so the hen will start laying eggs once again?

    It's a Modern Game Bantam rooster for sure. It could be a Birchen or a Lemon Blue... hard to tell if the yellowing is due to the sun or if he's lemon in color.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I am new to this. How can I get the hen to lay eggs? I have made 2 nests for her. Nothing. She did lay 1 egg on the dirt like 2 months ago when I just got her. She keeps making the same noise like the other hen makes but she refuses to use the nest or lay eggs? How do you make your nests? I have bought hay and used milk crates.

    Most Modern Game Bantams aren't great layers. Now that summer temperatures arre here she may noy lay for awhile.

    I've heard nothing but great things about Modern Games. Congrats! She'll lay when she's ready. Patience!
