    This morning I gave my birds some cold oatmeal I made this morning with some plain yogurt and their first DE.........They loved it!!!!
    After they had gotten as much out of the pans as they could I coated the pans with some feed and they continue to eat.......
    While I was in the coop, I noticed my Partridge Rock in the nesting box.....this is unusual behavior. Plus , she is on the bottom of the pecking order, but acting very vocal and confident......I placed her back in a nesting box and she scratched around then hopped out.
    She was looking at me like .........Tell me what to do.
    I stayed for awhile, but had to do more chores.
    I am hoping for my first egg today............
    I will be checking more often today......


    It is so humid here in GA, I hate going out during the day......but for an egg......I will!

    How sweet. Egg collecting is pretty addicting. I go out about every hour, if not more. 11 of my 15 pullets are laying now. [​IMG] A few of the pullets will lay and then come out of the coop and yell loud for a minute - that's usually my cue to come and look.... Pathetic, huh?
