Tonight I went out to gather eggs after our sunday dinner and our hen 'Georgia' shown below was nesting on the eggs well after bed-time (all other hens were roosted). Our hens have their favorite nesting box and so we had 5 eggs that Georgia was on. It took some effort to have her get off those eggs and go to bed. I turned off the light and sent them all back to bed. I went back to check on them an hour or so afterwards flipped on the light, and now she was sitting at the entrance into the coop rather than on the roost. This is the first time I have ever seen this and am curious if others have come across this same thing and what y'alls thoughts are. We did have rats a few months ago but haven't had any trip our traps lately. Is she truly on-guard or is it just her way of rebelling?
