Several days back, I peeked in and saw 3 out of 4 nest boxes in use. I thought that was pretty great. When I went to collect the eggs later, 3 eggs were in one box in a tidy, warm cluster and a fourth was in another. Odd, but I figured the other girls moved into that box as it became available because they like to lay next to another egg. The next day, I checked in the morning and saw Maggie's pink egg in one box and Hazel sitting in another. I was on my way out so I left it to get later. When I got home, Maggie's egg had moved to the same nest box as Hazel's -- a two-box place shift. So, I knew that I'm not crazy, the other eggs are somehow moving to wherever Hazel lays her egg. Hazel has since taken to sitting before and after she lays her egg for HOURS. I'll see other hens go in other boxes and lay and if I don't collect their eggs promptly, then I'll find Hazel sitting on their eggs along with her own. She was getting off the nest when I brought the kitchen scraps or let everyone out for range time but today she skipped her range time to sit there. She's not sleeping in the box so clearly not broody (yet?) but I guess I now know that Hazel's eggs are not really magnetic -- Hazel is moving the eggs so she can sit on them for a little while. Silly chicken.
