I know, I'd have to ask her that. But it is unsettling to think my Bantam is hurting/uncomfortable before laying. She is extremely noisy during the hours prior to laying, she also seems restless. Since I work during the day, I'm only able to observe her on the weekend. She just started laying 9 days ago. She yells and yells and paces for a couple hours before she lays. Also, she doesn't eat. Immediately after laying, like 30 seconds, she started eating and was quiet. What's your best guess?
