Well most of the hens have been laying for 2 months now, except for the EE's. My dad went out to the coup to visit the chickens the other day and he came up to me and was all like one of your bearded chickens is on a nest. So I go out there and this one was comfy on a nest and as I approached she ran away and a brown egg was under her. I looked at he and told her if that was hers she would meet the crock pot. Today I go out there and she is on the nest, and I approach her and she lets out that little scream they do and she lets me pet her so I know she is laying. I leave, and come back a bit later and remind her of the crock pot she lets out one single verse of the egg song, bok, bok, BAAAAK stands up and runs out of the coup. THis is what I find, it is the on in the middle of course. 5 more EE's need to start now, and I about gave up on em, so this gives me hope. So of course I had to call people and show it off to egg buyers and the people painting the shop and coop, lol.
