In the Brooder
- Mar 21, 2011
I have a buff orpington that has been laying for about 2 weeks (an egg a day) and as she is sitting in the nesting box she carries on like an old cackling biddy.....squawking loudly; then our roo answers her and then she responds...never heard anything like it. This can go on for 10-15 minutes until the egg pops out and she leaves the nest. Any one know if this is a fairly typical behavior or is she in pain? She doesn't seem sick in anyway and is not lethargic. Bounces right back with all the rest of them after that egg is out. Thanks for any information.
