But when I went to get eggs just now, 6 of the 8 were in the nest box she was found in this morning.
This wouldn't be too strange (I mean, it was a nest box, for crying out loud), except for the fact that this box --to date-- has been the hens' least favorite. I've never collected eggs out of this one --except for today.
And to boot, the nest was comically, and perfectly round.
Has anyone heard of this happening before? Do I dare get all sentimental and believe that the flock are acknowledging her (I know they're just chickens...but still)? Does anyone know if this behavior can be explained?
I know it's probably just a coincidence, but still --she was the alpha hen for the entire time we had her (4-5 years).
