    Female Peking, Male runner both about 18 wks.
    has yet to lay.

    Out doing the morning chores when 17 yr old kid says "oh lookie, you're a boat now"
    yup, they were mating(and yes, the kid knew just what they were doing)

    I guess my stupid question is...is this normal since she hasn't started laying?
