    i dont think punctuation really has anything to do with it you dont have to have a period or a question mark to read something and maybe make a comment on it and the question behind the whole thing is does this describe what chickens do when they are about to lay its simple and punctuating it doent make a difference not really anyways and it doent make me eliterate i just want the overal question answered and no punctuation added and i dont take it in a offencive way i just dont like being corrected again and again for a simple thing like (.) that i appricate your concern in this thanks

    I think that just sounds like normal laying to me. Is your worry that one chicken is egg bound? From what you were describing, it sounds like you have several different chickens who are laying in several different boxes.

    I haven't had chickens for that long, but I think that they are not averse to changing their laying box.

    I think that if a chicken is egg bound, they would be showing some symptoms? Maybe panting? Or acting listless? Perhaps you could do a search under eggbound and see what comes up?

    For what its worth, I hope that helps.
