All Hens just sitting in coup. They can’t all be broody right?
We have 4 girls. 3 Silkies and 1 Jersey. Our Jersey hasn’t laid in years as she is around 11 years old. This week they have all decided to just sit in the coup. One is definitely broody, as she is very prone to being. But the others, especially our older girl, don’t seem to be. Egg laying for them all has ceased however. I have read elsewhere it could be the heat, but until today, it hasn’t been over 85. They have plenty of shade, and are free range in our 1/4 acre. They also have been eating and drinking at a rate that I wouldnt find concerning. I checked them all for mites and found nothing. Could they just be choosing to sit in the coup rather than in the shade under one of our many plants and trees available to them? Any input as to what it could be is welcome!
