    Not sure if this should go here or in emergencies- but I don't think it's an emergency [​IMG]

    My comet who is 1 year old and has never done this laid her egg while she went to roost tonight at bedtime- I thought it was weird but maybe that happens sometimes- has anyone ever had this happen before ?

    Yup. Somebody here does it about once a month. Not to worry.

    One of our girls did it while a broody was in one of the nest boxes, we moved the broody and it didn't happen again.
