Hello fellow chicken lovers, I have it had it with my chickens! WHERE ARE THE EGGS! I have put the golfballs in the nice pretty nest boxes I have set up for them and you think I would get some eggs? NOPE! Not to mention I have like 18 boxes for about 12 hens! There is no reason they aint going in them!!What is there problem!? Anyone speak chicken. I feel it would be helpful in a time like this. Maybe they dont want to lay eggs. Can they choose not to lay eggs? I am trying to figure out how old they are .. Most of them I got around Mother's Day. I am pretty sure they are old enough. RIGHT? My ducks on the other hand have 2 nest going with a total of 13 eggs!! If only my chickens were that ambitious!! I was cleaning out my little flower bed yesterday and found a nest of like 7 eggs. They appear to be chicken eggs, but I dont know if they came from my newbies or if they came from my older girls. I took the eggs and put them in the nest box to see if it would help. I figure if I dont notice them on them then I am going to just remove them, since I honestly dont know how old they are. I am just going crazy waiting for them to lay eggs! I am going to lcok them in their pen till the give me an egg! No more free ranging for them!!! I have searched all over seeing if maybe they are laying somewhere else, and nothing. And when I am out with them the hens are either walking around or hanging in or under the Lilac tree! I am sorry if some questions sound stupid.. I am just venting. I REALLY WISH I COULD SPEAK CHICKEN THOUGH! THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL. CLUCK, CLUCK!! The rooster is one of my older boys.. but the other ones are my young ones.
