One of my two Buff Orpingtons has started laying, this is her second week and she usually has two days off in the week. She was running backwards and forwards frantically this morning for over three hours trying to lay. She has two choices, plus the freedom of the garden. Does it usually take that long? I wondered if she was stressed, or just couldn't decide where to lay. Any advice would be appreciated, as both Bea (the chicken) and I are very new to all this. Al the other times she has laid have been fine, and reasonably quick apart from frantically running to and fro.
