    G’Day from down under cricket88 [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    I have a question. One of my hens has started laying her eggs on the ground instead of in the box. Any ideas why she would do this?

    Is someone else hogging the box?
    Is she a new layer?
    How many hens do you have and how many boxes do you have?
