    I heard the unmistakable sound of the egg song this morning really really loud, I kept checking and nothing. (My other 2 pullets are pretty quiet when they lay) I've been waiting for the last 2 to start so I kept hearing the song and running out (and it's a balmy 5 or so). I couldn't find Daffodil so I opened the nest box and found this (the top pic, that's her butt and Aretha's face) I went back in and waited a while, Daffodil came out Aretha was still inside then she came out so I ran out again and found the bottom pic :D All 4 are now laying...[​IMG]
