Dumb rookie question, and it probably sounds absurd...can, or will, a chicken hold an egg in so she can lay it where she wants? My reason for asking is probably obvious. I've been keeping the girls in their run later and later, trying to get them all to lay in those nest boxes, but stil have a few that seem to wait, then head straight to the barn and lay there as soon as I let them out. Just wondering... I gave up and ended up putting a couple nest boxes in the barn too, at least they are using those. I just don't want anyone laying the woods, I'm not really into a daily Easter egg hunt.
