My girls' combs and wattles have gotten bright red. They are beginning to do the "squat". Well actually Maisie's doing more than "beginning to squat"... she runs around the yard squatting at anything that moves. I'm beginning to get excited that I might actually have pets that "make my breakfast". I wasn't really expecting much until Spring but all the signs are beginning to show. They will be 23 weeks on Monday. The wait is over!!!! I'm pretty sure it was Maisie. She appeared to be most ready. I'm soooo proud of her. I put golf balls in the nest boxes just this week. None have shown any interest in the boxes and didn't appear any had even gotten in them. Well I looked tonight and the golf balls in both nests were moved around and there was the most perfect little brown egg. Maisie's vent seems to look a little "used" and there was a little poop streaks down her feathers.
