Cinnamon, one of my little frizzle hens (28 wks old yesterday) was nervously going in and out of all the nest boxes, clucking and carrying on, and trying to burrow into the feathers of the larger hens (she would go between their legs and burrow into their belly feathers).
The other hens weren't too sure about her, and wouldn't stand still.
I picked her up to comfort her.... she snuggled down in my hands.... and laid her second egg, right there in my hand!
She laid her first egg last Friday, also while I was in the chicken yard.
I hope she doesn't expect me to hold her every time she lays an egg!
In honor of this experience, I whipped up this sketch. What a moment!
