That was what I was thinking but since they lay eggs instead of giving birth I wasn't sure. Despite the difference, afterwards she was really run down when I took her back to the coop she walked like an old lady, had wt weight loss and her face was-- faded? Not the pretty white. Add to the trauma to the flock, I think she needs the break. But at the same time didn't want to overlook something being wrong
Yes, even with free choice food right there they loose weight sitting on a nest. Being in the broody zone discourages eating, I guess. I wouldn’t be surprised either way if your girl lays for a bit now that it’s been, what, 5 weeks? Or if she holds off until spring.
