Yesterday I had two hens lay their eggs in the middle of the yard in different places. One was in the backyard and one was in the front yard. Very strange behavior. We have 4 boxes right now and they will usually only use 2 of them-sometimes only 1. Yesterday it was really hot and I wonder if it was just too hot to lay in the coop. It was 103 degrees with a very high heat index. This week I have been letting them roam around the yard so they can get more shade and hang out in the garden. I don't know what to expect today on the egg laying. We have a very big yard and I really don't to have to go look for eggs 3-4 times a day! Has anyone else ever had this happen?
