About 1 am this morning, I was laying in bed reading (one of my insomnia nights) when I heard what sounded like an egg song coming from the chicken coop. Since I've been having opposom problems, I grabbed a flashlight to go outside to check on the girls. All 7 of my RIRs were on the roost and when I turned the flashlight on them they all jumped down to the poop board to eat a soft-shell egg. Evidently one of them had laid an egg in the middle of the night!! In addition, I saw another, hard-shelled egg on the poop board that definitely was not there 2 days ago. I had no idea no idea that an egg would be laid in the dark. I keep one small night light on all night but there's no other light for them at 1 am. Since it was a cool night I had the window open and could hear the egg song. Our weather has been very warm lately so usually the window is closed with the AC on. Maybe they've laid an egg in the middle of the night before and I just didn't hear the song. Has anyone else ever gotten an egg laid in the middle of the night?
