    She is 7 months old, still waiting for her and MY first ever egg. She is laying in the sun next to a shed on her side, then she switches to the other side all while seemingly pushing...... I watched and encouraged her for 15 min... Could it be? How long does it take for a hen to have a egg and is this sort of what they do? OK I am going back to check... Thanks Joey

    Sounds like she is dust bathing not trying to lay an egg. How red is her comb and what breed is she?

    This was more of slow pushing movements, not the fast kinking things everyplace... BUT I went back to see and she was right up by my house...so I guess it was a faulse alarm... I was so confident I got the camera.....[​IMG]
