Do chickens ever accidentally lay an egg while sleeping? I’ve found eggs 3x this week under the roosting bar all from the same hen. They were laid very early...either before or right after sunrise.
Is my hen sleep laying or maybe it’s still dark and she can’t see to get to the nesting box? Should I add a light?
Only other thing I can think of is she’s waiting for the coveted nesting box to be free...but that doesn’t explain why the egg is under the roost bare of all places 💩 🤦🏻‍♀️
