Well I thought we had lost a chicken, one day about 2 weeks ago one of our gold wyandottes went missing, she didn't come back at night and I was a bit puzzled. Then about 4 days later she turned up in the morning very talkative and looking very hungry but then disappeared again to turn up today. I wondered if she'd found a better home elsewhere as I'd looked everywhere for a hiding spot for her, but on 5 acres it was a bit pointless. When she turned up today and took off just as fast, I followed her and am pleased that I found her hiding spot, or brooding spot should I call it. tra cứu thông tin doanh nghiệp
Up until she went missing she hadn't laid an egg that I know of, I think she went from pullet to broody. She's sitting on 14 eggs of which I think would be all she has ever laid.
I have an enclosure with a roof that I can put her in the day, I guess at night too if I wanted although it doesn't have solid walls, just chicken wire. This would be to break her broodiness, or should I take advantage and buy her in a few eggs to hatch. Her spot isn't the best for chicks. It's amongst the agapantha bushes but right where our driveway forks, so we'd be driving past her chicks often if I let her stay there to hatch. Yes I'd been walking and driving past her for weeks now none the wiser - she was hidden nicely. Or could I put her in the enclosure with eggs to hatch in there. I have some hay I can put in there so she can keep herself warm at night. After all she hasn't been returning to the coop now for a few weeks. If I do source her some fertile eggs, to I need to take anything else into consideration other than some chick food?
Also if I was to get some eggs I was thinking of ordering some off heritage farms out west Auckland. Is that a good place as any for Auckland supply?
Cheeky chicken straight to broody!
