    My little girl August 17 weeks and 1 day sang the egg song yesterday! How long do you think we have to wait for an egg?

    I must not have very vocal chickens because I have yet to hear the egg song and we have one layer who started Friday and has given us 3 eggs. Is your hen squatting at all? Our layer does squat so that's how I know it's her laying because the others don't do that yet. Anyway it shouldn't be long now I don't think!

    No not yet. Maybe they are squatting and I cant tell? Otherwise not yet no squatting just the egg song.

    I don't notice mine just going around squatting but when I go to pet her she instantly squats.

    My girl squats for my toddler and if the other chickens go to shoo her off. She won't squat for me, though! :lol:
