One of my pullets, a cochin, was laying here eggs in the nesting boxes like the other 4 girls but then.... About a week ago she sat in one of the nesting boxes for quite a while, got out , came out of the coop, and went to free ranging like the others were doing. Only problem was the egg was hanging from her. Sorry for being graphic. She walked around a bit and the egg dropped to the ground. It didn't break. Day before yesterday I found her egg in the run. Yesterday she sat in the nesting box for quite a while and then I found her egg in our yard. Why is this do you think? Puzzling. Any suggestions why?
