Hi all Wondering if you can help me. I have four silkies (two pairs that I got a couple months apart). The new pair are currently broody so are taking up the nesting boxes and have been for about 16 days now. The other two aren't and one is still laying fine, but the other hasn't laid in five days! She went up to the nesting box about four days ago and squashed herself in to try and lay and made an awful racket but wasn't able to. She isn't egg bound as she isn't displaying any of the symptoms of that, she's acting completely normal and eating/drinking fine and going about her normal day. Is this something I should be concerned about or is she perhaps upset due to the others taking up the boxes the whole time? Should i add a temporary box underneath? Thanks for your advice! 😀
Hi all I have a 2/3 year old Brahma hen who lays a lovely light cream coloured egg, this past month or so I’ve noticed that a day or so after it’s layed it turned spotty, it looks like dark grease marks appear unlike my maran who lays a ‘proper’ speckled egg. Does anybody have and idea why this is, not sure what or if I need to do anything for her diet etc they are free range and have layers available throughout the day. Any advise would be appreciated. I will post a picture of her and the egg straight after it’s layed and what they look like after a day or so. I keep my eggs in the fridge. Thank you
