    I put this out there but got no responses. So thought I would try again. I have a 17+ EE that has begun to squat in the presence of my RIR hen. The RIR is the dominant hen. Do you think the EE may be about to lay? She has not squatted for me, but she is less shy than she used to be.

    she will probably lay in a few weeks, if you dont have a room then that is normal for her to skwat.
