We've had about a foot of snow - no big deal compared to many parts of the northeast. But it's been snowing on and off for about 48 hours. The chickens have been out of the coop, in the run, and don't seem to mind the snow (but went into the coop when the wind kicked up). I haven't let them outside the run to explore - I want to wait until the storm is over to let them out. When I went out this a.m. to feed and water and collect eggs (I have 3 reliable nest box layers and 6 others that are only about 16 weeks old), I found one egg in the middle of the coop, amongst the pine shavings. I also found 3 of the ceramic eggs I place in the next box in different areas of the coop (mostly near a corner). The other 2 eggs were in the nest box as always. I also found a soft shelled egg just beneath the nest box - so someone is getting ready to lay - despite the weather. Curious -- why are they moving the ceramic eggs around? Is this behavior boredom? I'm guessing the egg I found in the middle of the coop was lay in the nest and rolled out by someone else? And - how the heck re they moving them??? I learn something new every day and just when I think I'm getting the hang of this - they confuse the heck out of me!
