    So out of our 5 adult girls, only 2 are laying. The other 3 are either getting ready, or way past the age of laying (barred rock looks to be older than dirt, no clue on age). So that leaves 2 girls that should start laying any time now. And both are grumpyyyyyyyyy. [​IMG]

    Wow, squawking at eachother, making all sorts of noises, much more testy with eachother, acting like typical pms bound women! Could this be a sign that they are really super close to laying? No squatting yet, but we can't get close to them for that! I know when our wyndotte started squatting for my dh, she started to lay about a week later, so we got that one figured out.

    Thanks all,

    I need some coffee and I think I shall visit my grumpy ladies...[​IMG]
