One of my Dixie Rainbows, Princess Lay-a, started laying this past weekend She is about 19 weeks old and gave us our first egg late in the morning on Saturday. She behaved normally the rest of the day. On Sunday morning I found that she had laid two rubber eggs from her roost. I understand this to be normal at first. No worries. Around 11 ( the same time she laid her first egg) she started sitting in her nest box. After a little while I heard her Bawk-Bawk an egg announcement...but there was no egg. The rest of the day, every time I checked in she was sitting in the nest box. I kept shooing her out for fear that she was overheating (she was panting). Late this morning ( Monday) we had a lovely little egg and more of the same behavior. Is she trying to go broody already?
