I've had my hen for over a year and she has never done anything like this. I'm worried this will be a habit and the noise to my neighbors will be the reason why I won't be able to keep my hen. I heard her call at midnight and found that she desperately wanted out, which is something she usually does in the morning when the sun comes up. She very specifically walked up to a table, jumped on top of it, and laid a soft-shelled egg. I moved her back into her usual coop area but she insisted to come back out. I let her out and she went back to the table where her egg was and started to eat the egg. She refuses to leave the table and is sleeping there. Very confused and unsure what to do about waking up in middle of the night and the egg eating. The only thing I can think of that might've awoken her is that a family member moved back in and now occupies a room with bright lights but no blinds, which pretty much brightens up my backyard, but I've used that room in the past at night and it was fine.
