to lay her first egg! I did notice that she was getting her "egg belly" the other day and was thinking I that was going to need to provide her a nesting box. I've had to keep her and her two buddies separated, for the most part, fm the chooks and Scovy sleeping/nesting areas BUT that didn't stop her boys fm helping her find a good spot to lay. I noticed the three kept hanging out in the carport this morning looking around "quietly" which is very unlike them. The two Pekins were looking intently at something so I checked it out and our Black Swedish boy had gotten up behind some items where a plastic lawn chair was sitting which had a nice pile of pine shavings under it. I moved a few things around "just in case" they were trying to help Buttercup find a good spot to lay an egg. Just checked on them and both boys are waiting patiently close by while Buttercup is sitting under the chair......... Well, I should know soon. They are such good drakes and I do have them posted to Craigslist to rehome but Buttercup does seem to be able to handle them both. Don't know how Buttercup does it & I did have to separate Daisy, our handicapped Black Swedish hen fm their very much UNWanted advances, but I have seen no excessive breeding fm the boys and Buttercup looks and acts fine w/nary a feather out of place. I separated Buttercup fm the boys yesterday & put her in with Daisy. She seemed fine for a few hrs. then she started honking up a storm wanting to rejoin the boys and actually charged at Dasiy. Poor Daisy! So I let Buttercup back out w/her boys. Well, the three are out and about so I checked but no egg yet..... maybe later today or tomorrow.
