    an egg
    My 24 week BO has been acting different. Everytime I go to pet her, she does this weird squat thing with her legs apart, spreads her wings apart slightly, and kinda holds her tail feathers higher than usual. Is she ready for a rooster?

    Lol, yup. That is also a sign she is ready to begin laying so you can expect some eggs here soon if she hasn't started laying yet.
