I have three laying hens. They are pretty consistent about which nest box they lay in. They almost always use the same one of the three we have. In the last week I have found two eggs (about a week apart) in their run. Both were near the bottom of the ramp that leads into the coop (about two feet of the ground). When I found the first one I couldn't decide if it was layed in the run or if it was layed in the nest box and then rolled out and down into the run, it was not damaged. The one I found today was cracked and suggested to me that it was rolled out of the coop and not layed in the run. In the past I have found the fake egg that I sometimes keep in the nest box rolled out into the coop (but not all the way into the run). The two eggs this week were also strange because they were very pale. My chickens lay brown eggs but these two were more of an off white. Does the off color indicate an issue? If so, do the chickens know there is an issue? Or is it just chickens being chickens and doing weird things? If so, why the off color and why just the off color ones removed from coop? Other things that may or may not be a factor: - The fake egg that I sometimes use is white so that I can tell the real ones from the fake. - They don't always roll the fake on out. But have a few times. - I have three 2 1/2 month old chickens that have been living with them since they were hatched. I don't think they are the ones rolling the eggs out, the big girls keep them in line pretty well.
