    So in this pic hiding in the banana tree clippings is my Lucy. She's been squatting for a few days now she went in here spun around several times out her booty in the air for a few seconds turned again same thing put her booty in the air. Then she started a fast chattering. Bak back bak bak really fast and panting I put her in the coop and have her more cold water she took a sip and went and pushed my fake egg around in the nesting Area then paced the floor more. I can't post the video I got in my phone. So is she ready to lay or too hot lol she usually likes the sprinkler on her but today she doesn't want it but anytime I come near her she squats down and pushes her "shoulders area" out.

    This certainly sounds like a prelude to laying an egg, but even if it is it may take more than one day...how old is she?

    I'm hoping for green or blue since she's an EE can't wait.
