    If her butt isn't swollen, the clutch may be only 2 eggs. Opie is an older hen and older hens can be unpredictable. If nothing else, you've given them another coconut shell!

    well somebody didn't like the ladder attached to the coconut. It was chewed off from inside and was on the floor.

    No egg but all poops look normal and opie seems fine. She's hiding her butt by sitting in the old coconut but was very active when I got home and not at all fluffy. Maybe there were only two. She is almost 8 now.

    Well I didn't get a good look but she's moving around and her butt doesn't look so big anymore.

    Opie seemed perfectly normal this morning. The poops under where she was sleeping were normal sized. I haven't seen a huge poop since saturday.

    Maybe she decided to stop at two eggs.

    She did ride out of the cage with the food dish but I was able to bring her right up to my face without losing my nose or fingers. She seemed happy and as easy going as I've ever seen.

    Sounds like 2 eggs may be it.....for now. It also sounds like all the interaction she had with you while she was "with egg" may have strengthened her trust of you. Go with the flow. That's about all you can do!

    DJ didn't like all the attention she was getting. He yelled at me all weekend and went through every obnoxious sound he knows.

    the new coconut looks like it's been through quite a battle. The ladder is gone and somebody has been removing all the hairy stuff on the outside. They're having fun.

    Well Opie seems to be back to her normal non-egglaying self. All poops are back to normal size. I guess for now she stopped with two.

    I'd be so stressed out if Max was a female. 😩
