keep her well fed, well watered and let nature take its course.

Some folks like to separate them from the little ones to help them get rid of that mothering urge.

Well, my wheatie mama laid her first egg since Easter!

Thanks for the advice of patience. I know that tends to work most the time.

But here is another secret.....
The last time I posted like this, I asked for advise concerning my pullets and when they would lay. Two days later, they started laying!
So, it seems, whenever I ask for advise here, my hens get in gear and produce!
