Our sex-link girls were 16 weeks today. This morning DH sat down in the run to discuss what I wanted for the nesting boxes. Dolly Parton, one of the golden sex-links jumps in his lap and starts to 'talk' to him...almost like she was telling him what SHE wanted! We laughed and he got started. Well, Dolly was right there while he built the shelves for the boxes...the other 5 sex-links joined in when he started painting the shelves...every one of them has white paint on their heads. None of the other 16 girls took notice of the project, but Dolly was there supervising the whole thing. When he put the Rubbermaid container/nesting boxes in place she hopped right in and checked them out. She had been very loud all morning with what I think was her Egg Song. She repeated it over and over. When she was in the box the other sex-links were outside watching her. We went inside about 1:30 for lunch...when we came out Dolly was very quiet...thought that odd after her constantly Bawking all morning. I had set up a larger Rubbermaid container with a frozen milk jug and we decided it would serve as a good nesting box for the Buff Orpingtons. I picked it up so my husband could cut a hole in the lid and there was our first egg behind it. Dolly must not have thought much of DH's project. She was quiet as a lil church mouse the rest of the day. I was so disappointed we missed the Egg Song after she finished laying that first egg! Looking forward to hearing it tomorrow!
