I went out this morning to get the egg from my sole layer. I found an egg... and an egg-sized tomato. The hen, a seven-month-old light sussex, was not sitting on either. Um... why? Does broodiness factor into this at all?
We have had Dominique hens "steal" eggs from neighboring nesting boxes but no produce. Does she have access to tomatoes? It is quite amazing to watch a hen roll an egg around with their beaks and necks. Or you have an amazing chicken that lays eggs AND tomatoes!
