We have 2 BA hens, a BR hen and a BA rooster. The BR hen was the first and only so far one to start laying. She laid her first egg about a week and a half ago and has laid one almost every day since. We keep waiting for the two BA's to begin laying. Anyway tonight my husband went out to the coop to shut them in for the night. When he walked into the run the BR came running out of the coop where they'd already gone to bed and sat on an egg that was in the middle of the run. My husband petted her for a minute then she got off the egg and went back in the coop. The egg was much smaller than the others that she'd laid and she usually lays them in the coop. We're wondering whether she was trying to show him there was an egg there so he wouldn't step on it and was this even one of her eggs as it was a lot smaller than her other eggs. Would she have done this if the egg was laid by another hen? Was this a fluke or is she a really smart chicken? What are your thoughts?
