As I was schlepping groceries in yesterday, I heard the awfulest BA - GOCK, BA - GOCK, BA - GOCK!! I had never heard that before. I've read that hens do that when they lay an egg. So, I quickly carried in the cold stuff, left the rest in the car & grabbed my cell phone to get that first picture. Got up to the coop, and everything was normal. Looked around in the run & no egg. I thought "Hey great, she's layed in the nest box for her first time." Looked in the nestboxes - only thing there was the same old fake eggs. (siiiiggghhhh) Later on, my DH & I heard the same thing. It was Millie, our Blue Andalusian who is about 6 months old. She was in the run and nothing was around to bother her. My Ameraucanas are also about 6 months old. I must have late bloomers.
