    I have 3 RIR mixed? 25 wks 1 has been squatting for 2 wks tomorrow and a few times has dug around in the nest box moving golf balls and fashioning a nest. Well yesterday and today around 8:30-9:00 AM she has been in coop BAAK BAAK BAAK BUH GAWK really loud and crazy for about 1/2 hour or so on both days. I was excited yesterday went out and NO egg.... Today same thing except I was convinced this was it! I even took my camera out to the coop and again NO egg.. Is she rehearsing for the real thing or what? Is this normal and if so how long on average will she rehearse?

    Iam not sure about her first egg-laying, but I got a ameracuna at 1 year and she was laying for the guy I got her from. It took her a week or two of rehearsing to actully get the egg out. I assumed it was due to the change in environment. But she did practice, practice, practice. My neghbors were less then happy with us for a while!!
