We have not finished our coop yet. My hens stay under the coop and range free all day (after they lay their eggs). For some reason one of my buff orpingtons is set on hiding clutches of eggs. She has no desire to sit on them, just hide them all over the yard. The first clutch was under a tarp covering our lawnmower. The second was under a different spot under the same tarp. The new clutch I found this morning was in my hibiscus plant at my front door. (Talk about breakfast delivery!) I had to laugh. The other orpington lays under the coop. This one just wants a family I guess. I wish I could have her raise some of my hatchlings, she has tried to get nasty with every baby I have showed her. What causes this egg hiding behavior? I can't wait until my hubby finishes this darn coop!
