    I need help! It's been 4 months since I took her last egg. I took her nesting box/kennel away. I only bring it out at night to sleep in. Bare kennel. No bedding. I put her in an open bottom cage all day for weeks. Went crazy, climbing, flapping around. So, then out in the yard in the mornings. All she does is pace all day by the garage door because she knows her kennel is in there. If I don't remove her in the morning and put the kennel in the garage, she does not come out at all. She stayed in for over a week before I started removing her. It's been a total of 5 months now since started laying and now no eggs, won't leave the box and is obsessed w trying to nest. Won't socialize w the male anymore either. I hate this but I love her! What do I do?
