    I keep taking the eggs, I have 5 nest boxes,but all my other hens go in and sit on top of the hen in that nest box and lay their eggs? I take the eggs everyday and she cracks me up with her puffy chanting at me, I take her out 3 times a day she runs crazy around the coop, gets a drink, gets a bite and back to the box. Is this normal? I'm thinking I'll let her hatch some eggs, she's a very sweet hen. I was just wondering if this is normal and another egg question, she lays white, light brown and a pinkish colored eggs ? She's a crossbreed of game hen and "leghorn" is what I was told. Is this normal? Yay chickens!!!!!![​IMG]
