    My little easter eggers have started just sitting in the nest boxes most of the day the past few days is this normal? I was thinking they were just practicing for the real thing but I wasnt sure??[​IMG]

    No, she's just practicing to lay. And maybe taking a snooze while she's there. It's normal.

    Ok...phew thanks after day 3 of this I started thinking they were sick or something, there so funny though the 2 easter eggers do everything together and the 2 BO do everything together are all chickens like this prefer the same breeds as themselves?
