This morning while fixing breakfast I heard the strangest sounds coming from my coop area. I put on boots and rush out thinking perhaps a predator. No, it's my roo singing what I've learned from others the egg laying song! I look in the nesting box to find one of my RIRs . None of my hens do the singing before, during, or after and this is the first for the roo. I have noticed this hen is his "favorite". I go back awhile later to find nothing in the nest but a gooey mess, not egg like at all. What does this mean? This is the first time she's layed since I purchased her in July. Not sure how old she may be. My girls are fed a high quality layer crumble, table scraps, greens, scratch, and oyster shell.
