I have three hens Scamper my BR, Nugget and Red are red stars. This past week i have only been collecting eggs from Nugget and Scamper. So i thought Red was sick or something i've checked her over every day, she doesn't have anything wrong, she is perfectly fine. I thought she just decided to take a vacation. But this morning while getting ready i heard one of the chickens going on about something. I opened my bathroom window (it over looks our deck and the coop is under the deck) and i see my dog sniffing aroung the telephone pole in our yard. I called him and he comes back up on the deck and to the back door. (waiting for me to let him in) before i close the window i see my Red running out to the pole, why are you out? So i went out to investigate... there Red is sitting next to the pole in the long grass laying her egg. But the thing is, i have a run attached to the coop and I let the hens out when i'm there to keep an eye on them. Red has found a way to get out, lay her egg, and get back in before i come out to feed them every morning!! Thats why i haven't foung Any of her eggs. so after she is done i check the spot and there they ALL are, silly hen. Yay she isn't broken!! I think she started doing this because my BR Scamper is starting to be a nest hog. Time for another nest i guess.
