May 10, 2022

My Grey is laying eggs.


Should I remove the eggs,in the past shehas broken them and eaten them,now she is trying to hatch them.


Answer:

Hi Dave,

It’s OK to let her sit on them for a few weeks. But do not give her a nest or anything she can use as a nest. Laying eggs is very hard on a hen, so it’s best to try to discourage egg laying. If she is doing this often, then you may want to take her to the Vet for a hormone implant or injections.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
