    I have a 1yr old brahma hen who has been laying for a while, uses the nest boxes till last night or this morning when as she was sitting on the perch just laid an egg, thank goodness there was sawdust on the floor or it would have been messy. What would cause her to just up and lay her egg off the perch?
