    We have a pullet who managed to get out of the backyard and laid a second egg on the workbench in the garage. She has laid in the nesting boxes, but she felt the need to lay somewhere. We clipped on wing, we may clip the other wing. How else can we discourage this behavior?

    Usually chickens don't want to lay in the egg box and want to lay somewhere else. Its something rare.
    One time one of my chickens layed beside the food bucket..

    I have had one lay on top of the cabnent we keep in our coop. She must have passed the word becuase three other want to get up there.
    Here is a tip. If you clip her other wing it will balance her and she will be able to fly just like before.

    She laid 2 in the old BBQ in our backyard, maybe we'll open it up for her again. So, she can still fly even though both sets of primaries are less than half their original length?
