19 week old easter egger found in nest box. I walked away & 15min layer hear an announcement of an egg. She never did this before but the nest box was empty.
Has anyone's hen ever pretended to lay an egg. Efore?
My chickens HAVE gone into the nest box and left without laying, but none of them actually announce anything, even when they do lay so I'm stumped there. Maybe she laid somewhere else and is trying to trick you?
My hen who has some laying problems does this frequently. She actually had me convinced she was laying blue eggs, but really she just hadn't laid an egg her entire first year. Hers are white, and she's my only white egg layer right now, so now I know when she's faking.
