Yesterday I could tell Cinnamon wanted to lay her egg. She hangs around the patio and is more vocal when she wants to lay.
Soon she was settled in her spot on the perch in the chicken shed. I heaped the pine shavings beneath her.
I went back a little later and was surprised to see this.
She seems to have had a “light bulb” moment and decided that this is actually a good spot to lay her egg.
I checked back a little later and her egg was in the nest she had made in the corner. Well done Cinnamon! I wonder if she will now continue to lay in a sensible place. Time will tell.
