    One of my hens has 3 eggs in an old tire that I filled with straw. I removed the Tom today. Some eggs are partially covered in straw. Is this OK??

    Do you mean when she is off the nest? Because yes that is normal, they will cover the eggs a bit with whatever is around them before they leave the nest.
