As I am very new to chicken raising, I am not sure what is classified as 'normal' behaviour or not.
For the last day or so I have been noticing a hole dug in their enclosure. Today when we went up, the white girl was laying in the hole. At first I thought she was struggling to get up, so I reaching in to check on her. She then got up fine.
But it was then I saw that she had been laying on a largish round rock. Does this mean she thinks it is an egg? The white girl is twelve months old and she is a Leghorn Chicken.
We are used to weird animals, Tira is the weirdest cat I have ever known.
Does this mean we will get eggs soon? Or is she just playing surrogate mother to a rock?
Tira likes to hang out in the cubby house
