I have only two hens. Today one was sitting in a nest and the other one kept getting in there with her. She wasn't pecking or squaking or anything. There are 6 nests. I kept pulling her out and putting her in other nests. She finally layed her egg in another nest. She has used other nests than the one the 1st hen was in before but it is their favorite nest right now. Is this normal behavior?
Oh yes, I had a silkie brooding and my LF light brahma hen was laying her eggs in there, with the silkie still in the box! I mean, they were like smushed. Then the brahma decided to go broody as well. After about 2 weeks of this, the silkie hen decided to move to another box.
