Happy Days

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all, well, after 2 months of eggless breakfasts, I finally gathered 3 today.  Not bad, 3 girls, 3 eggs.  When I got home from work at 4, my B.R. was squawkin and carrying on.  I thought there was a predator so I ran out.  She and another one seemed agitated.  When I gathered the eggs, 1 was warm, 1 cold and 1 in between.  Could this be a prolonged victory dance?  It's been an hour and they have settled down slightly.  Is it possible that she over stretched her egg hole and she is sore/hurting?  Thanks

She probably layed the warm one, hens will sit in the nest for a while after laying and sometimes the cackling doesn't happen immediately, I watched on lay her egg, I shagged her out to get the eggs, she went and ate a bit, then returned to look in the nest and started cackling. Whether her bottom hurts we will probably never know.
