    Ok..maybe unnecessary question. When one hen lays an egg, should I remove it for the next hen to lay. Just wondering if it annoys her to have another hens egg there. Will she just lay her egg next to it? Did not check for info about this. Watching the girls hustle and bustle around nest, curiosity I guess. Happy New Year all :)

    Leave it in and it will encourage other hens to lay in the same place
