Hennie is squatting up a storm! She is laying really low and does it all the time now! Today I shook her tail while she was squatting like another poster suggested and sure enough, she hunkered down lower and then shook me off when she stood up. I haven't heard an egg song yet, but I'm gone at work all day. It doesn't look like she's been in the boxes. However, every time I go check them, she jumps up right next to me to look in too. Sooooo cute! She follows me around like a puppy. The other 3 like me for treats, but Hennie follows me around no matter where I go. I have to watch where I step so I don't step on her...she's up my butt.I can pick her up now too. I didn't get her until she was over 3 mos and she's a RIR so I wasn't expecting any bonding. I love her! Waiting patiently for my first egg. I wouldn't be that patient, but I have to wait 2 wks after worming them all last weekend so I have 3 more days for the time limit to be up. If she lays before then, I'll probably just take a pic of it and toss it. No biggie. More eggs shall come. Unfortunately, the other 3 seem far from laying if they need to look like her. Two have barely any waddles and one has medium wattles but nothing like Hennie. Oh well. Patience is a virtue.
