Our 25 week old Welsummer looks ready to lay any day. Her comb has grown in nice and red and she is acting so strangely. Today, she was frantic to get into our front yard. She escaped once and we put her back in the back yard and then found her pacing the fence trying to get to the front. (We live on an acre so they have about half an acre to free range in the backyard.) Is she trying to find a place to lay? Is it possible that she has layed an egg in the front and wants to get back to it? I am thinking about making her stay in the coop and run all day tomorrow to see if she lays and to see if she will calm down about the front yard. We normally keep them in the coop and run till about 1pm each day, but since we just added some younger pullets, we have been letting them out earlier, until all the chickens have adjusted. Any ideas on why she is behaving this way? Thanks!
