Funniest thing.....my red star started laying first, a month ago. She is a machine and lays EVERY day! Wow! But she refuses to use the nest box and lays under the roost. Ugh! I clean under the roost every day so she has a nice clean place to lay. I figure at least she's laying in the coop! Well, this week our cuckoo Marans laid her first egg! In the nest box!!! :O Shockingly, this girl has laid every day since, also (4 days now)! Well, this morning the red star put her egg in the nest box that the other girl started laying in! LOL "Oh, well, if YOU say that's a good place to lay, I must try it, too!" LOL Granted, the Marans IS the alpha chicken of our group. It cracks me up that the established layer changed where she laid because another girl laid elsewhere! LOL These chickens are a riot.
