    Frou-Frou is nesting! Of course, the nest boxes will not do...

    [​IMG]

    She likes corners to nest in!

    ...Biddy, you're in the way!

    (Biddy: "Sorry...")

    [​IMG]


    Hmmm... No, this corner isn't right. Maybe over there...

    [​IMG]


    No, this is much too dirty!

    [​IMG]


    ...And this scoop is in the way over here! There's just no proper place to nest in this coop!

    [​IMG]


    Thinking she might want to nest in the straw on the porch, I let her out of the run. ...Oh, but there are so many nice places! She had to take the scenic route to the porch.


    There might be a nice place back here, but old rooster Toes was making her nervous...

    [​IMG]


    Well, now that he's gone... Oh, no, no, this is far too muddy!

    [​IMG]


    ...If only she could fit in there...

    [​IMG]


    Well, she does like corners.... But this one is too cluttered!

    [​IMG]


    Oh, yuck, no!

    [​IMG]


    A bike! Perfect! But she'll need a bigger one...

    [​IMG]


    Now we're talking...

    [​IMG]


    Let's see... This looks promising...

    [​IMG]


    It's a tight squeeze, but...

    [​IMG]

    ...She made it! Now, to fix it up.

    [​IMG]


    Shifting, shifting, shifting...

    [​IMG]


    Shifting... Hmm... Well...

    [​IMG]


    No, this isn't the right place.

    [​IMG]


    Back to the coop!

    :rolleyes: Well, I'll keep y'all posted on her progress.

    She is so cute. Some day she is going to find a hidden nesting spot that is hard to find. You will really have to keep an eye on that silly hen.

    I can't upload from this computer, but as soon as my laptop charges, I'll get the pictures! It's so tiny, as small as my Sebrights' eggs. :love

    Here it is!! At 33 weeks and 1 day old, Frou-Frou, the last of the pullets from 2012 to do so, has laid her first egg!

    [​IMG]


    It didn't even move the egg scale and it's about the size of the eggs from my Sebrights. The lighter egg is a Sebright egg:

    They grow up so, so fast... :jumpy Oh... My big fuzzy's all grown up! :hit

    Oh, that's so funny. I have hen that spends up to two hours finding a spot to lay. Sometimes she yells at me to open the laundry door, and she'll sit in a box for a while. Then she'll yell at me to let her out! And then...well you know! What a cutey.

    :D Thanks, y'all, for the complements.

    We're looking at egg number 2 today! Frou'f's been pacing at the gate for a while now, but I'm not falling for that again. :rolleyes:

    "PoopPatrol" ?? What's that label in the 11th photo?

    I think you captured Frou-Frou's search for the perfect spot perfectly! Thanks so much for sharing the photos and narrative with is.
