    She is acting strange. She is hanging out a lot in the dust bathing holes that they have made. But when I try to catch her she runs from me, but seems a little slow and then lays down again as soon as I stop. Could she just be getting ready to lay an egg? Here is a picture of her. When I went out to check on her again she was in the coop. She is 5 1/2 months old.

    She is a beauty - appears to be in great condition and just about to start laying. [​IMG]

    Mine like to bathe in the dust holes too. I would think she is just trying to cool down. Not strange to me. Just give her a little time :)
