For some strange reason, I have one stupid hen (Miss Bean), who insists on laying her egg in the run. All my other hens lay in the nest by 10am. Not Miss Bean. Between 5-6pm she goes and sits in the nest for 15 mins or so, then promptly comes out into the run, and lays her egg. Unfortunately she's not a vocal layer, so I often discover the egg after it has been kicked around a bit and is all dirty. Even worse, sometimes it is buried, and doesn't resurface till the next day. I have no idea how to prevent this. I have tried locking her in the hen house for a time, hoping she will finish her duty in the nest box. Nope, she will stand by the chicken door, making all kinds of worried noises, wanting to join the rest of the flock out in the run. Frustrating... Any ideas? We called her Miss Bean, (because she is the skinniest hen, and lays the smallest eggs) after the skinny Mr. Bean.
