We are new to the chicken laying and having chickens. My rhode island red started laying eggs two weeks ago. Since then the past week she has been wanting to sleep outside of the coup on a branch in our pen. She started out laying eggs a nice light brown then went to a pinkish brown color and now back to light brown. She did miss one or two days. None of the rest of my chickens are laying yet. We are trying to figure out why she may be wanting to sleep outside her nest and does her being the only egg layer have anything to do with it. Any help would be appreciated. I live in Georgia so it has been very hot during the day and in the 70's at night and we do have a lot of ventilation in their coup.
