I came home this evening and sat down in the backyard with the girls before putting them up. As usual, our very friendly Orpington ran to me and hopped in my lap. Then her coop mate, a Speckled Sussex, trotted over to me and started to bear down very hard. I thought she was going to poop but she laid an egg at my feet! They have always laid in their nestbox. Why on earth would she do this?!

She wanted you to have an egg RIGHT NOW. Or maybe you threatened her with the BBQ if she didn't give you eggs?



Kidding of course.
That's pretty funny, but who knows what goes in their little brains. If she's a new layer, they can get surprised by the eggs coming.
