I'm so excited! I've got 6 chickens and I think they are all hens, and I'm getting 2 eggs a day from them. This started this week-and I'm thrilled! They are still small, but I don't feed them laying pellets so I'm not expecting them to be super huge. I didn't have an egg in the box this morning so I fed and watered them and as I walked off I noticed one of them acting funny so I went up to her and she had an egg on the ground pecking at it. Did it come out of the box, out of the coop and the to the ground, or was it laid by the chicken on the ground? Also, later in the day there was another egg. Am I under the mistaken impression that chickens lay eggs in the morning?
