The bird in question is a red sex link who was born in mid-April. She's been laying for a few months now. The only problem is each and every time she lays (which is quite often) she lays in the middle of the night off her roost into her poo pile (which does cushion the landing of the egg I guess since they don't break). I read on here that that's sometimes normal for newly laying girls and that she'll straighten herself out in a bit. She hasn't. Almost every day there's an egg in the poo pile off the roost by the time I get out there to let them out. The eggs aren't even warm when I go out in the morning (and I let them out now at 6 am - it's still dark but I have to because of my work schedule) so it's not like she's waiting for me to wake her to lay. It happened in Summer when I was letting her out when it was starting to get light at 4:30 AM (she had already laid) and it's happening now that the days are much shorter. I have 13 nest boxes of all different types for 32 girls. Everyone else uses a nest box chronically. Any ideas? I don't have power out there.
