My girl BR "layed" a pooky in the nest. It was the size and shape of the nest eggs. Could she be practicing? I bet there was quite a bit of cackling involved too. Am I just too optimistic? More relevant info: She is 26 weeks. Sometimes her comb and wattles are bright red, sometimes they are very pale. They can change several times in one day. She will finally let me pet her back, but it isn't an obliging squat. It is more like she is putting up with it, but trying to avoid it. She has a huge butt. Am I likely to get an egg before NewYears, or will I not see it until the days really start to get longer?
