    LOL! Ok...Today as my EE Cricket, was in the nesting box, 3 of my other hens stood right next to her and watched for a while, almost like they were cheering her on! WooHoo!!! 2 of the other hens came out of the coop but Mumford my BR stayed. So I checked on Cricket to see if she was ok and Mumford...well, she had already laid her egg a couple hours earlier, so was she really helping here??? LOL! I mean, Mumford was laying all over Cricket, pretending like she was going to lay another egg! HAHAHA She finally left like a minute before Cricket laid!
