    My pullet Gamma does that too! Only it's not even my yard- she jumps over the fence into the neighbor's yard (which is a construction zone) and lays an egg there

    Quote:That is also on my neighbor's side of the fence...I told her, "You're on your own, Girl." I'll be looking for chicks around Jan. 6th.

    Quote:She comes out, around 11 am, once the air is warm enough, to scratch around and get something to drink....I just happened to see her and followed her back...I actually had to pull some weeds along the fenceline, to see her....You, literally, could not see her, from 3' away.

    I finally got a look at the girl's nest......19 eggs, from at least 4 different chickens.
