    Oops so wrong I was in hurry
    My pullet was sqating loud and then ran into the coop and sat on the nest box after 10 minuets, she squated even louder then I ran into the coop to the nest box but there was no egg

    My girls are just starting to lay. They're surprised I think get very chatty before-hand. Cute to watch.

    My Australorp loves to cluck up a storm when egg laying time comes.

    Not broody, just practicing.......they can act very goofy at onset of lay.
    Just be patient.
