Just like people we need a male, or at least a "donation" to
make a baby, just like our birdies do. :-) We get our
monthlies regardless of if we WANT to become pregnant or not
and so do they.
Make sure she is getting enough calcuim and a quality diet.
Allow her to sit so she doesn't try to keep replacing the eggs
and deplete her calcuim....If you can keep an eye on the eggs
sometimes new hens can break the eggs, in the event of a
leaking broken egg either remove and fix or just toss, the
bacteria just isn't worth the exposure for one egg....
Tell your lady you love her and take good care of her~! ;-)
