    I have a Jersey Giant that is confining herself to the laying boxes. Each box is separated by a wall and for the life of me,
    all the eggs end up in one box and under her. How can a hen transport an egg like that? I have also spent the last two weeks
    pulling her from the box trying to break her but she continues. The rest of the flock, a total of eight, seem to be snipping at her
    and her back at them. Is this normal?
