    I am shocked! My CHIX are only 4 months old and I just found 4 small eggs in one nesting box this evening!!! Is this normal...I have 4 Rhode Island Reds that hung in and around the coop this evening instead of free ranging.... I did hear a weird screech as did the other 10 hens that are High Production Reds! I know those eggs were not in the nesting boxes this morn...and I have 12 nesting boxes and all 4 eggs were in one box....? is that strange? Did they all take turns one after the other??? I am so excited!!! Who can help me???[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yay! Doesn't sound like you need any help to me, they are doing great [​IMG] It's not weird they all laid in the same box. It could have been one after another, or it could have been a big chicken pile.
