    We had an appointment today at the Temple Texas VA... So I didn't check nest.. and hubby had let the girls out... When we got home around 11:30 am... I looked in the nest box and thought that the egg in there looked different ( I have dummy wooden egg in each of the 2 boxes).. I went around and opened outside door and low and behold there was a small brown egg with spots on it in there !!!! Drats I wonder if she sang a song...
    I have two Rhode Island Reds and on New Hampshire Red...
    They have been going into nests off and on the last few days so hopefully all 3 will start laying soon... This works out good as the ducks have just about wound down and are molting..
