I think of my chooks has decided it wants to have a chick. I feel sad for her because she hasn’t figured out that without a rooster it will never happen for her 😦
For a good few weeks, since the weather started warming up, both of them were laying an egg each which is perfect. In the last week though, one has started nesting all day and getting really defensive when I take the egg off her, she gets all puffed up squawks and pecks and won’t let the other chook share the nest anymore, so it’s down to only one egg a day.
Do I give it a fertilised egg from somewhere or keep torturing it by removing the egg everyday and hope things get back to normal?
