This is the 2nd times my hen has followed me around then laid a random egg next to me. She was one of my first layers and has used the nest boxes before. I'm not sure why she wants to lay eggs next to me. Any one ever have this happen? I was stacking extra lumber in my drive way and a foot from my feet I look over and she's in egg laying stance and plop egg on the driveway. I carried her to the nest boxes 15 minutes earlier because she was making egg noises next to me and getting all snuggled up.
