    My Black Star Markena has been giving me all the signs you guys told me about here for the laast 2 weeks:
    Squatting every time I look at her, inspecting the nestboxes and I swear she is PMSing for raisins (their fave treat)

    Tonight when I let the girls out for their evening playtime, I checked the nestboxes out of (hopeful) habit and....
    FOUND AN EGG!!!

    So sometime today - after I put them up in the coop around 7A & the time I got home around 5:30P - Ms Markena sang her song & became a Hen.

    It's small, it's perfect and I can't decide how I'll fix it for myself
    I'm thinking one very small serving of egg salad [​IMG]

    That is GREAT, congradulations!

    I just found my first egg this evening. It was not in a nest box but on the floor in the corner.
