I went out this morning to find a broken egg in the middle of the hen house. I know the ladies aren't laying on the floor, they have always laid in their next boxes. I usually put a mixture of hay and soft dried grass clippings, but I was lazy and only put the hay this time. Think this is their way of saying they want softer nest boxes? FYI - only two layers right now, both of my leghorns. But one of my wyndottes is getting really close too. Also thinking it may be the almost layer kicking up the hay and getting used to the feel of the nest boxes. Just want to ensure I don't have any further broken eggs! Thanks everyone!
