    I have a young hen who seems to "accidentally" lay outside the box. She goes in the box and sits then comes out like she is done and squats about 5 feet outside the house and drops the egg and it usually has a little poop. Is something wrong with her? She seems fine and I wormed her twice! What to do?

    That's quite unusual behaviour. It doesn't seem like anything is wrong with her luckily, just watch her though.
