    Hi all, this morning I discovered a broken egg under my RR roost. This is the second time in 3 days. Can anyone suggest what is going on here? I have 2 nesting boxes for 4 hens, so crowding can't be an issue. Thanks
     
  2. maybe she is just laying them late and is on the roost when she lays them.

    I recently moved and this has happened to me 3-4 times. I attributed it to the stress of moving and learning our new place.
