So my hens are egg eaters. What I am going to do is hatch out a new flock to replace them. I have attempted to collect eggs from a few of the hens I want babies from, and have collected 2 of the 4 eggs so far. (Quite difficult to catch them before they eat them) Setting the eggs on Wednesday. The other two who I've have yet to collect from are a Speckled Sussex and a gorgeous EE. This is Atlantis, the EE. She is 2 1/2 years old. I haven't even seen a blue egg shell in about 2 months, maybe more. I REALLY want an egg from her, but I don't know what happened? They free range most days, so is it possible she's laying outside somewhere? Or just quit? This is Adrian, the SS. She is just 2. The past two days I've been stalking her to snatch an egg. I know she lays because I got one last week from her. She sits on the nest for a while, then gets up and walks away! I've closed her off in the house so she can have privacy and the other hens wouldn't eat it before I got to it. Is there anything I can do?
