I haven't been on here for so long, I have a hen with a bad habit I need to break ASAP. My hen (Eclipse) started laying 4 days ago. On the second day, I couldn't find her egg, so I was walking towards the coop and saw an eggshell and yolk on the ground. My chickens sleep in the tree above their coop. I looked up and saw my hen right above where the egg was. She laid while she was in the tree! I thought she was just not wanting to lay in a nest box, so I brushed it off. But today she laid in the tree again. So I thought I would take it to backyard chickens. Please, we need to make this behavior stop.
