    My blue cochin just laid her first egg today. And talk about lazy. She laid it right by the hanging feeder! [​IMG] I almost stepped on it! 12 nesting boxes and she decides to lay while she eats!! [​IMG]

    Jacie, she was multi-tasking. Was she on her cell phone too, by chance?

    Yes, they do need energy to lay. I say let's hook her up to her cell phone re-charger. That will take care of two things at once - something that obviously appeals to her.

    Mine were doing the same thing until I put fake eggs in there. Have you tried that, I only had one fake egg and they are fighting to lay in the one nest box and I have two.[​IMG] Go figure. Gotta get another fake egg.
