    Well well well, I kinda figure that the first egg would be on its way soon, given the strange new behaviour of my hen "Chicken" [stooping when I walked by]. Now to put the whole thing in a context I got these two RIR's about 5 months ago as a gift from a friend and I was told that they were a Cock and a Hen, and I named them Chicken n Chips, Chips being the "male". However after several people saw him and said he was a she, I got confused, so I decided to upload some pics, whereupon I was advised by the community here that my boy was a girl!
    So this morning I heard a distinct Puck Puck Puck, PUH PUCK!" and I just KNEW that it was the 1st egg but to my surprise it was not the frequently stooping "Chicken" when I arrived I saw "Chips" in the nesting box, It was really eggciting, so check out the video.

    Lets see when Mother Nature steps in how she would react from then on.
    She would be a changed Fowl.
