    Well, yesterday it was raining so I kept my chickens in the coop area instead of free ranging them. In the late afternoon it quit raining so I let my chickens out for about an hour or so before they had to go back in for the night. Anyways, one of my hens earlier in the day escaped and was making lots of noise so I knew she was going to lay an egg. She ended up laying an egg in my tack room on the hay. Then when I went to put everyone away this same hen was missing. I ended up finding her again in the tack room on my hay. She was acting like she was going to lay another egg. Well, I wanted to put her in, so I carried her over to the coop and put her in her pen and as I set her down all of a sudden out popped another egg on the ground. I thought that was rather funny, never had that happen to me. Has anyone else ever had that happen?
