    Broody Hen

    A cat crate worked for me - now known as 'the sin bin' Put Barbara in there but removed her from the run to a covered area on the patio as the others seemed too interested in pecking at her. At night I waited till the others had gone to bed and put her in the run covered with a towel as she seemed too agitated at seeing the eglu and not being able to get to it. In the morning she was removed again. After 48 hours we tried her back with the others and 'hey presto!!!'' it seemed to work. That was over a month ago. She had stopped laying but started again after about 2 weeks. p.s. the cat crate is not a modern plastic one but a really open mesh one which we placed on 4 bricks and used cable ties to tie the food and water bowls to the side.

    sorry, not come across this one. Maybe the previously laid egg just gets in the way. Are you able to check regularly for any laid eggs? When I'm at home I check 2 or 3 times a day.
  5. I'm no expert but I would think that it is to do with the weather. If there was anything in the eglu then they all would have refused to go inside. As long as they are safe I wouldn't worry - they like to make up their own minds...lets face it they don't have a lot of say in how they live do they!!?!?!
