    I have 11 laying hens, I go out in the morning and let all of them out of the coop. I get the good moring eggs out maybe 1 or 2 a day now. About 8 in the morning or so There is on hen that goes in by nests and hollers at any of the other ones aroound or the ones that come in the lay. I have put some of them in nest by hand and she shup- up. If anouther one shows up it starts all over again. It is like this is my house get out until I am done. What is going on??

    This is before she even gets close to getting in nest. I was just watching and it looks like every one of them want to go in same box and are waiting in line. I have a wireless cam out there to see what is going on. Oh yeah, she does tis yelling even after she lays.

    Might just be her egg song. Is she good with the others, or being nasty?

    Yep, she's just singing the egg song. Mine do it too. In fact, my rooster was even participating this AM - he got in the nesting box and all................[​IMG] what a funny sight!
