    My nesting box is at an incline so after the chicken lays, the egg will roll back. However, my leghorn went in and tried to get the egg back to sit on it. She wasn't broody or aggressive. But was distressed and looking for her eggs after I took them away. Is that normal? Please advise. I pick them up daily and try to get to them before the chickens learn to eat them Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    nice flock!! and congrats on the eggs!! it is always so exciting when you get the first eggs from a group of chickens!! I love Luna, she is gorgeous.

    I'm not sure about the nest thing...i've never had a leghorn care about their eggs before, but i've also never had Exchequer Leghorns (that's what she is right?). They are really hard to find.
