    So my normally docile and quiet girls (3) all of a sudden became cast members of Jersey Shore ever since one of them started laying 3 days ago. Is this normal?!

    I hear it from their run that is 150 feet from my house. I swear they are reenacting an episode or something! I go out because I am expecting insanity.....and they stop, look and me like I have two heads, then continue when I get back in the house. It only lasts an hour, and low and behold, there is an egg a little time later.

    I thought maybe the layer is in pain, but all 3 of them are yelling.....can I expect this every time someone lays one? This will get interesting when the other two kick in....hopefully they will coordinate their laying time so they wont be yelling all day!

    I think they are just proud, and telling the world! I have 9 and it does sound pretty funny when they all get going.
