    By the way, Maxollie, do you have a pic of your precious Ollie? Or is that her next to your profile?

    Aawww! Ollie is a cutie! And boy does she look serious in the 2nd pic on her eggs! Thank you so much for sharing!

    Penny was about 75% of the day setting on her eggs but she will come out when she sees her favorite snacks, esp Grapenuts cereal.

    She also flew to the kitchen sink where she enjoyed a drizzle bath from the faucet.

    Yes, Ollie sure was a cutie. Back in 2012, we had a "bird-th-day Party", for Ollie here on the Tailfeathers. She was known as "The Diva"!!

    My birds also love grapnuts cereal, as well as cherrios and rice krispies. I feed those three because they are very low in sugar and salt content.

    Happy to hear Penny is doing well. And as you know, yes . . . Penny is just like Ollie was with her eggs. . . serious and loving. Some hens will hiss and bite at you or even bite you if you get too close to them when they are nesting, but my Ollie never did either.

    Thanks for the update, Kalei. Have a great day!

    Re: Update On Penny and her Infertile Eggs

    Today is day 21 since Penny laid Egg #3, the first of 4 eggs of clutch #2.

    Although several days ago she was venturing out of her cage more, she is now back to some serious setting.

    Should I be concerned? Or do you think she will lose interest closer to 28 days?

    Re: Update On Penny and her Infertile Eggs

    Hi Kalei, I would wait a few days longer. My thought is because of the first two eggs being broken, her natural instincts have told her to keep setting on them. I will say that my Ollie used to set on them as long as 28 days, and after that time I would remove them. I know that I ran the risk she might lay again, but eggs will get rotten soon after that period of time.

    I don't think you need to worry about it, but after the 28 days, post again, and we will try to walk through what the next step might be for you. Clive has vast experience with egg layers, so I am hopeful he will read this post, and give us his thoughts and opinions.

    I have to tell you I think your Penny is a "twin" of my Ollie! As you can see now, they just "love" to nest with those eggs! It used to touch my heart every time my Ollie laid her eggs, and like you, it was sad to know they would not hatch. We will pray that your Penny loses her interest in them by day #28.

    Re: Update On Penny and her Infertile Eggs

    Yes, any advice would be great! Yesterday afternoon Penny was in and out but today she has been on her eggs for most of the day.

    Sigh...she seems so content yet I am concerned that the 28 day mark is quickly approaching.

    I hope to post a pic soon!

    Awww! She is so proud of her eggs. Hens really do get into laying eggs and loving every minute of the process. Thanks for those precious pictures! (sure reminds me of my Ollie!)

    Penny has been venturing out of her cage all day today! She enjoyed watching the wild birds play in the rain. Hoping she has lost more interest in her eggs...

    That is such a beautiful picture! You live in a beautiful area of Hawaii! Perhaps you could print an 8 x 10 picture and frame it! Penny is sooooooooo beautiful! I see a very spiritual and loving little Penny in that picture! Thanks for sharing the pic with us! Sounds like she is beginning to lose some interest in her eggs. That is great news!

    Re: Update On Penny and her Infertile Eggs

    Thank you for your kind words, Maxollie! Penny does look like she is in deep thought in that last pic! She absolutely loves to look out the window and "talk" to the birds outside!

    Today is two days before the 28 days since Penny laid Egg #1 of clutch 2.

    Yesterday she was in and out of her cage all day. She has a vet appointment for a toenail trim on Saturday (the 28th day) and I am wondering how to handle her egg situation. Should I remove all 4 before we leave (vet is a 1.5 hour drive one way)?

    Thanks again to everyone for your input and kind words! It's been quite stressful and I'm so glad for this forum!

    Re: Update On Penny and her Infertile Eggs

    Do you have a travel cage? Or are you taking her in her regular cage? I am not sure this is a good time to take them away from her. I do know that my Ollie would not be a happy camper if I took her eggs away from her. If she had completely abandoned them, it would not bother her. I'm not sure a 1 1/2 hour trip without her eggs is going to be the best option. I believe if it were me, I would wait until after the trip, and see if she abandons them next week. If that does not happen, and you take them away, at least she would not have to suffer the frustration without them with a Vet check and toe trim on the horizon! Even if you are taking her in a travel cage, I think I would take the eggs along. I am afraid her being without them on that long drive just might upset her alot!

    Hopefully others will see your post, and perhaps they will have an opinion on this subject.
