    I posted yesterday about one of my hens submitting to me by squating......I come home from work today and find in the corner of the run............an egg about the size of a teaspooon!!!!!! Pretty cool feeling.
    Just thought I'd share.

    [​IMG] I always read about the squatting and just couldn't picture it in my mind. Everyone says you'll know it when you see it and eggs are soon to follow. Its all so true its almost unreal, isn't it?
