Our lil hamburg chicken, whom we call trouble, is often wandering around our yard but usually runs back to the chicken paddock when she sees me with the scrap bucket. Today however she did not appear. I looked around a bit & spotted her feathers she looked very still, I was worried that she had been killed by an animal. I wandered over to the fence, just near the gully as I approached I saw her lil head pop up, she eventually moved and under her I found 12 eggs. It appears that, seeing as she cant get into the roosting boxes as we have 3 broody hens, she has found her own nest.

I went back a little while later to find her wandering around in the next door neighbours paddocks, she is no back home with her sisters.
