Ok, I am curious. When I pet my girls, they developed a new behavior... they sort of bow. Their head goes down, wings out a little bit, tush up in the air and sometimes the feathers around their head & neck will puff out. They are about 22 weeks old. Is this normal? Is it good? Or does it mean they are all plotting to kill me one day? Ollie, my Buff Orpington never really let me pet her... and now she is doing the bowing thing. Nugget also does it, she is my Dominique - but she was always my baby. NOW.. for egg laying. Ok - I have 7 standards (21-22 weeks) My first egg was really small and a medium brown... laid 7 days ago My second egg was long, and thin and a very very very light brown, almost white... laid 4 days ago Is this from the same bird do you think? Why is it taking so long between eggs? How long does it usually take for them to be regular daily layers? THANKS!
