    DH went out to get Ally and Cadbury off the deck this morning since they thought it a good place to scream their fool heads off while we were eating breakfast. He said Blue was on her nest under the shrub - did they know that or were they upset that she was missing? I have no clue. But Ally was still quacking like a fool while standing right next to the shrub.

    Anyway, I went out and while waiting for DH to turn on the hose, I squatted down on the deck to check out what Blue was up to and saw her standing rustling her tail feathers and then they spread out wide and I noticed she was about to lay an egg. So I watched LOL
    Not really all that exciting [​IMG] But kind of neat I guess.
    She sat on it for a while, stood over it for a while and who knows what she's up to now, I got tired of watching her stand there.

    They are funny little things when they are getting ready tolay. Ive sat many a time when Ive let them out to early and watched when a duck keeps going to the same place to scratch a nest out. Ive seen a couple lay butt towards me. Most of the time the Pekins have laid the egg and carried on like nothing happened
