    So my girl started squatting yesterday now she is being a loud mouth when hubby was checking for eggs. She came running and then she stole the bag of meal worms from me lol she's normally the shy girl.

    She is getting close to laying or is about to go broody.
    Do you have a rooster in the flock?
    How old is your flock?

    Well I have two young Roos not with her though they're too young for the free range girls. They are 4 months she was a addition and I think she may be a few weeks older.
