    I have two chickens that lay eggs on my porch bench. It has a nice comfy cusion! I guess my girls are trying to tell me that the straw in the their nesting boxes just isn't soft enough!! [​IMG]
    It is convenient for me to just open the door and walk onto the porch to collect the eggs. Does anyone else have chicks lay eggs in weird places??

    Here are two I found on the bench cusion.


  2. I have a good friend who used to live two doors down when we both lived in Florida...now we both live in TN. There were two chickens that roamed the neighborhood who would lay an egg in a chair on her porch every once in awhile.

    Some people use indoor/outdoor pieces of mats in their nest boxes.
