    Since we introduced the 3:chicken: new girls about 3 weeks ago, our egg production has dwindled to zero :confused1:

    The new girls have slowly been accepted:nicegrouphug:, Lucy the head hen still gives them a peck and on occasion has grabbed one of the new girls by her comb:_oh_really:.

    The Weather has been atrocious:weather_rain: so that may have been a contributing factor but we are wondering if “Broody Cherry” has been putting the other hens off. Cherry sits in the laying area all day and if it wasn’t for Karen hoisting her out 4 times a day she wouldn’t eat or drink. Is it possible that he site of a broody hen sat in residence could be putting them off?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
    Karen & Ian

    YOu can just imagine them all lined up outside the nesting box.
    "Who's in there?"
    "Cherry"
    "Not again! Have you finished in there? I can't hold it in much longer!" (pecks at door)

    Maybe they have to settle their pecking order before they get back into the swing of laying?
