So when two chickens want to lay in the same nest box, what is the logical solution? Wait 'til the other is done? Grumpily use another box? Peck the other until she hurries up and lays her egg? Seems one of these hens came to the conclusion that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em! Yep, two chickens smooshed into one box. Thankfully they are both small, since even large fowl Araucanas aren't fat like a marans or an australorp (I can hear them yelling "I'm not fat I'm FLUFFY!). And they were miffed that I was so amused at their situation! How I first found them After I finishing laughing, they repositioned themselves (lots of angry squawking involved) "Go away lady or I'll peck your eyes out." If looks could kill, I'd be deaded a million times over.
