    I watched my EE hen Hawk lay a double yolker today, looked quite painful and she stood still as if frozen for a good 15 minutes after it was laid!​

    Quote:I feel "lucky" to have been out there when her time came... It was pretty neat.. I was suprised she just jumped right down and went back out side when she was done..
    no egg song maybe next time. They are all squatting now. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
