Hens first egg?

Postby laallee » 20 Jun 2015, 14:52

Hi,I have a twenty week old Cotswold Legbar that has yet to produce an egg. She has been sitting in the nest box for an hour each afternoon for the last 4 days, then she moves out without laying!
Has anyone had this before? he isn't in any distress and she is eating well.
Thank you.

She's 'just practising' - the egg will come in due course. (And quite possible not in the nest box! :lol: )

If she's red on top, and generally behaving like she normally does, don't worry.

Pop a dummy egg in the nest box to encourage her to keep going into it,won,t be long till you are rewarded.
