    Today I went to collect eggs. There were none to be seen but the straw was messed up so i decided to rearrange it.
    surprize ! 3 eggs hidden under the straw...one of my girls was chatting up a storm after I took the eggs.
    The Northeast had a bad storm last week and us in Ct. are still trying to get power back. I was unable to get to the coop for a couple of days and the eggs sat uncollected about a day. Now, 3 days later, this behavior. None of the girls seem to be sitting in the nesting box over much so I can't tell of a chicken is going broody or not.
    I'll tell you what, chickens are far more complex than people give them credit for ![​IMG]
    Last week, i got to see the 'chicken dance', fascinating animals:confused:
