barren, crowing hen now eats eggs

Recommended Posts



I'm afraid some older hens do get a bit confused and start crowing - they can also grow spurs. :shock:


I had one that did it a few times but then stopped. It can be due to a hormonal imbalance or just to step into the role as there isn't a cockerel.


As for the egg eating you could try leaving rubber eggs in the nest to put her off or a mustard filled egg. It has worked for a friend.


Good luck :D
