    I need help or advice! Just went out to lock up my girls and noticed that my one year old Austalorp was still in her laying box after dark. We noticed she was in there late afternoon but got busy and didn't get out there until just now. No egg but wet underneath her. Not like egg whites but like water or urine. No smell though. She doesn't seem I'll. No watery poop that we can find. It is so strange and I'm so worried. Please help

    Does she growl or peck when you try to put a hand under her?

    No growling, seemed nervous though. she seems better today. I usually don't let them out until after lunch. But thinking I will now to see what she does. My husband thinks she fell in the pool and went and pouted in the laying box???? It was so strange

    That's what we thought, but it was so wet underneath her? Have you heard of that?
