Frizzle is kicking eggs out of the nest?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
2 days now, I have gone out to find Frizzle egg at the bottom of the ladder to the nesting boxes. Is she throwing it out? Surely she wouldn't lay an egg at the bottom. And this morning, it shattered when I picked it up. Did she know it was too thin? Did she damage it throwing it out of the nest?

Two times I have found a frizzle egg thrown out of the nest too. But I saw the culprit.  When my frizzle serama left her nest unattended, young nonlaying pullets immediately got into the nest and started scratching looking for food I assume. It wasn't long before an egg bounced out of the nest.  To stop this I gave the frizzle a deeper nest to brood in. Oddly, the pullets immediately lost interest in the nest.
