    I have a 10 week old Deleware Hen that keeps going in the chicken house and looking at the nesting boxes when no other chicken is near. Surely she is not ready to be laying is she? I find her by herself alot. Does anyone have ideas on what she may be doing?

    Thanks

    No way she is going to lay this soon, she is probably just curious.
