    At some point I recall reading on this forum that chickens don't usually lay under stress. This made sense to me, since egg laying is biologically linked to having babies. Well, I got my new baby in the mail today. She is a beautiful little Mille Fleur Cochin [​IMG], and even though I was worried she seems to have weathered the two day, cross country journey pretty well. The thing that I found odd was that she apparently laid two eggs in the shipping container. I didn't see them since DH picked her up at the PO this morning and fed them to the dogs. Anyone else ever had this happen? I just thought it was so odd!
