    My husband and I went out to collect the eggs together and found two hens in the community nest box and the black hen (either BPR or Cuckoo Maran???) was actually making a low growling sound we've never heard so we started watching her carefully and sure enough, she laid her first egg with her bottom facing out for us! Then the red next to her did the same thing (with no growling)! It was so amazing to get to see the actual laying!!! [​IMG]

    I won't EVER go out without my camera again, I promise!

    That's exciting stuff! When I saw it the first time, I actually managed to get it on camera. It was the hen's third egg, and I sat there and waited until she laid it. Even though I was sitting there waiting for it, I don't think I was *prepared* for how wonderful it was! It was such a little miracle!! I was so proud of her. And the egg was so warm!!
