    What area are you all in? I would think weather would have an impact on when they start laying.

    Wow I went out to see if Elmo had moved where she was laying since I hadn't found any eggs in the last few days , sometimes she will stop then start again , I did find the nest and as I was about to collect the two eggs she walked over and sat down and graced me with another one while I watched her , I love it when I can see her gracefully lay it on the ground then she kind of cradles it with her neck wrapped around it for about 3 minutes till it turns hard. one of the coolest sight's ,I have seen it more then a few times and every time it is like the first time and Ernie stands there close by almost with moral support [​IMG][​IMG]
