I'm a first-time chicken owner, and my dominique is laying her first egg right now. But she's not nesting. She's up and about. I went out to give them some veggies before I took out the compost, and it was stuck to her bottom. It's a little bloody/sticky, so I thought it might be stuck to her feathers. I rinsed the area, and it is attached. (Not just to feathers.) So I just set her down.
She seems confused. I am for sure ;)
Is there anything I should do? Is it normal for a first-time laying pullet to walk around and lay at the same time?
Thanks for your help!
