    Hey all, our Sweet B is 3 eggs in 3 days, and today she laid in the nestbox! Thing is...two days in a row when she laid the egg she just stayed there basically until I bothered her by trying to sneak a peek at an egg. She wasn't aggressive or anything like that so I don't think that it is is it normal for her to hang out for a while after laying an egg? If so, I'll let her have her time next time![​IMG]

    Some hens lay their egg and jump up cackling, some just get up, and some hens like to take a break after pushing out a egg. You know kinda like any mother. [​IMG]
