With the longer days and warmer weather, my girls have been laying more consistently. Most days we get five eggs, one from each hen. But they do not all lay at the same time. That is good since despite the fact that there are multiple nesting boxes, they all like to use the same one. So I check often during the day. Amber is often last.
Yesterday I had gathered four eggs through out the day. All but Amber’s egg.
I went up to check an hour or so later and she was STILL in the nesting box!
Curious, I broke it into a small bowl. There was a thick membrane under the shell. The shell broke in tiny pieces.
