So my girls are starting to lay. Shaka was the first- and today Caramel is displaying the same behavior as Shaka did for the first lay. I can tell as they both run around making noise and seemingly look like they are trying to find a place to lay. This seems normal. The weird part is that none of the chickens have ever tried to jump up on the fences before. Each of them has now kind of wigged out and they jumped up on the six foot fences. I rush over and whoosh them off because I clearly don’t want to lose my girls over the fence. I put Caramel in the run/coop so she can lay. Once Shaka laid, she totally calmed down and doesn’t get up on fence again. When she was going to lay again yesterday- back up on fence… what causes this? What are they doing?
