Is there such a thing as egg laying etiquette? I’ve often wonder about this. I have heard stories of hens lining up just to lay their eggs in a favorite box, each patiently waiting until the hen in front of them has had her turn. Often in our nesting boxes, I will discover two chickens laying their eggs at the same time in the same box. It is so cute to see them stuffed into the box, chatting together and singing the “egg song” duet. It must be a bonding experience and one that they enjoy as I discover them this way quite a bit. However, yesterday things were a bit different.
