I was over the moon 5 days ago as we got our first ever egg from one of our Orpington's, however it has raised some questions as follows. She starts acting strange before she lays her egg like she does not know if she is coming or going or what she should be doing and going in and out of the hen house scratching around. Once the deed is done she walks off quite content. I understand that it must be still a strange experience to laying eggs (Ouch!!), will she continue to go through this every day or will she settle in time? At the moment her eggs have been quite small although she did lay a monster of an egg on the second day. is it normal for the size to vary. Any advice would be welcome.
