I took my camera out to the hen house this evening when I went out to collect the last of today's eggs. I collect eggs first thing in the morning, and then again around dinner time, to gather up any stragglers that were left throughout the day.
I noticed Luann was in a nest box "organizing" the wood chips and hay. She's a young pullet and hadn't started laying yet, so it was unusual to see her nesting. A few minutes later, I noticed she was displaying egg laying behaviors, so I started taking video!
Here's Luann, laying her first egg! And it's green! Poor thing -- check out her reaction after laying the egg... imagine her surprise when she realizes that she has to do it all over again tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day....
