    This morning as I was letting the girls out into the run, they all came over to say good morning by pecking @ my shoelaces. "Hmph....those aren't worms!" I could hear them saying.
    Served up their morning treat of broccoli & corn, & one of the girls squatted!!! It was only for a second, but a definate squat!! I was so excited!!! [​IMG] I hope eggs aren't too far behind!!! The girls are 18 weeks old today.... [​IMG]

    Should be within 2 weeks now! Some take longer then others [​IMG] My Brahma laid her first egg 6 days after squatting for the first time.

    I've had a couple of squatters for about 2 weeks and got my first two eggs today at almost 19 weeks.
    You're very close now. Got my fingers crossed for you. GOOG MOJO to you.

    WOW, my girls are 18 wks today also. I thought I heard the "song" yesterday, but no eggs yet. I can't wait.

    Oh, congrats and hope you get an egg soon.
