My 4 BSLs all started laying this week and it's been fun watching them go in coop and get in nest box and wait for them to come out so I can get the egg. Today, while free ranging, one of them starts squawking and making a rukus in the yard. I'm thinking she's laid an egg but could not find one. Few minutes later she's pacing in front of closed coop/run gate and squawking so I open the gate. She goes and gets in nest box. 45 minutes later she comes out and stands at door of coop and crows/squawks (hen style) for about 5 minutes. I'm laughing because I think she must be announcing that she's laid a whole nest of eggs. But...NO... not a single one. Do hens have false labor? Or was she just trying to get even with the one that had laid an egg earlier today?
