    Not only did Whitney squat, but I caught her peeking in the nesting boxes. Just sticking her head in and then pacing in front. We think she is about 21 weeks, they told us she was 15 when we got her, but what I've learned from this site, I doubt very much she was 15 weeks when we got her.
    What do you think, maybe an egg soon???? [​IMG] Her comb looks much redder then the pic is showing as do around her eyes.

    Mine aren't squatting, that I've noticed, but they are going into the nest boxes and raising the devil. Throwing straw everywhere.

    I feel your pain, lOL! I have a lil Americana been practicing all week. MY RIR roo even climbed in the ducks nest box to show her how, lOl it was too funny! She watched him for about 5 min, then climbed over him and scooted him out [​IMG] But alas, no eggs yet, although, she checks out all the nest boxes all day! [​IMG] . I'm beginning to think that my younger hens who are 2-4 weeks younger are gonna start before she does [​IMG]
