    My peahen still has not layed. Do they ever lay an egg and just never go broody?
    She layed one from the rafters of the barn a week ago. Nothing since.

    Oh I am sorry. Maybe she could have laid a clutch somewhere in the woods and she rather doesn't have enough to go broody on, or something has eaten them.

    Pip was doing this, she would lay all the eggs off the perch.[​IMG] Then today I saw her setting on her first clutch! Give her time, she is young and needs to figure out what to do and eventually she should get it. If she doesn't get it this year she probably will next year.
    Look on the bright side, at least you know she has laid an egg so she is capable of that this year, and there is still plenty of breeding season left for her to get this right![​IMG]
