I seem to have a string of hens that like to lay eggs up high! I have had two go broody in these very dangerous places for chicks. One was in a palm tree, about 9 feet high. The other brooded on top of our peacock aviary, about 12 feet high! and hatched two babies! We managed to move her down with a very high ladder and the babies were fine, but we might not be so lucky next time! Now I have a hen who is laying eggs on top of a tarp in the peacock aviary. They often fall down before I can get them and then everybody eats the cracked egg. And all these hens are different breeds! Any advice on why this happens? Is this natural for hens to prefer higher places? I know that nest boxes are generally made off the ground, and mine are about 3 feet high. Thanks so much for any help!!
