All of my chickens fo the nesting behavior when they lay an egg. If there is already an egg there, *fooop* underneath her it goes.

Yesterday I was in the coop and I thought, "Man with this heat they sure are slowing down laying."

Then my SS finished laying. She hopped off, gave me an annoyed squawk, and hustled out the door. When I looked in the nesting box, she'd been sitting on 14 eggs.

Sneaky chicken.
