    We got out 1st egg on Saturday & it was like Christmas day to me! I never really noticed mine squatting, just noticed our roo mating w/ the hens for ~3ks prior to us getting our 1st egg. Good luck! [​IMG]

    this may seem silly but i check my chickens to see if i can find any signs, since they free range. when i went to check her little but she squatted right down and started wiggling around.

    I don't think it's silly at all, just means your a good chicken parent. If she did that I bet you'll see an egg in a weeks time or 2 at the most. [​IMG]

    You wld think so, but I remember my grandma's RIR's maturing fast. Who knows, they lay when they want to lay is what a lot of forum members say. Sure is exciting for you though. [​IMG]
