    Two of my EEs have been squatting for over a month now and I just got my first egg today! [​IMG] Mine are 27 weeks and 1 day old. How old are yours?

    Congrats! [​IMG]
    I still remember my first squats. I thought they were getting muscle cramps or something, it was sort of scary. [​IMG]

    Just wondering if my roo (19 weeks old) taking interest in my EE (23 weeks old) means she could be getting closer to laying? I have not yet seen her squat. I have other hens that just started laying about a week ago, just a little bit older than my EE.

    Quote:Maybe. One of my girls laid at 18 weeks about a week after my roo started 'taking interest'. :)
