I have 8 laying hens, I have a variety of breeds so I have many colored eggs. I have green eggs, blue eggs, speckled eggs, brown eggs and white eggs. They have been laying well for two years I get an average of 7 eggs everyday. This year they have begun scratching the bedding from their nest boxes and laying eggs on the floor of the hen house. I'm wondering if anyone knows why they are doing that and what I can do about it.
Hello, I have enjoyed my hens and coop from Dare 2 Dream since 2017. They are nice egg-layers as well. I am concerned about Goldie, the sex-link, who just sits on her hocks most of the day. She will take a few steps and then sit down and does not go up/down the ramp. She was getting picked on, so now she is separated and is brought in to the house at night. She is skinny despite eating. I am providing TLC and after a month, brought her to the vet. He really couldn't tell what was wrong with her w/o blood work and scans. Her poop tested normal and she does not have lice or mites. I added B complex to her diet a few days ago. Do you have any idea what this could be? Thank you for your knowledge.
