    I was just out at my coop cleaning the run and one of my leghorns was about to lay. She was running around, in and out of the coop so I closed the coop door for her to help her relax a little. While standing at her side, coaching her in between contractions "HEE, HEE, HEE, HAA, HAA, HAA, like any good Roosurdaddy should when one of his ladies is in labor, I could hear her panting, and pushing until this huge beautiful white double yoker dropped to the nest floor. What a true wonder of nature creation is !!! I know, it's only an egg! But to think about what our beautiful ladies go thru every day, "or every other day", or in 9 months to bring another life to this world. WOW Thank you to all ladies out there for everything you do.[​IMG]

    Wow!! Happy day. Must be a great day for eggs. My girls haven't started yet but we just had a 20 minute egg song session. I hope I hope I hope they start soon.
  3. So exciting....Never gets old when pullets start laying.....My Bantam started last week...Cutest green egg...Now my Danish Brown finally laid her first egg today...She sure was singing about it......

    Too funny to hear you sit with them as they lay....Haha! Your a good labour coach.....

    Cheers to the Birds!

    It never does get old...especially if you witness the actual laying.
