    One day I was going to check if anyone of my chickens laid eggs, and I found two eggs but my chicken was still right next to the eggs, but I grabbed both of the eggs and then my chicken started screaming! Why is this happening?

    My chickens will start clucking every time one of them lays an egg or is ready to lay an egg.

    Welcome to BYC first off.:frow

    Its normal. Those are HER eggs as far as she's concerend. Unless she's going broody she should leave the nest shortly after she lays an egg. You can wait till she does, then collect eggs. If she doesn't leave and keeps fussin at you, she may be going broody. :D

    Wouldn't you scream if someone was kidnapping Your babies? If all she did was scream, you got lucky. My ducks attack, bite, call their friends to gang up on me.

    If they could dial a phone, they'd call 911 and turn me in.
