    I started getting the "squat" last week from a few of my gals... after MONTHS of waiting... and I got my first egg 2 days ago! [​IMG] I have gotten one a day in the same nest box. I am assuming its the same hen laying one a day. I have 10 other chickie-mamas, will this encourage THEM to start? About half of them have started this noisy crooning-squawk noise when I come around and 4 of them squat for me. HOPING!!! I want to upload a pic of the first egg but cannot figure out how to do that on this forum...

    I would try to explain about uploading your pics but I think I would just confuse you [​IMG]

    If it tells you anything, my lazy bums seem to think that the one that's laying ought to be laying enough for all of them [​IMG]

    Congratulations! Exciting, isn't it. My first of 4 started laying last week.

    About the uploading of pics, I think you need to use a photo hosting site like Photobucket, Image Shack, or Kodak. After the images are loaded in your account on one of those sites it will give you a variety of codes to choose from for different situations. You copy and paste the codes in your reply message and the picture will appear. Its safer to go through a photo hosting site then having a forum take straight from your puter. Personally, I use Photobucket. They have tutorials to help show you how to do everything. The others probably do also.

    Here's a link to Photobucket.

    Here's a link to Image Shack.

    Here's a link to Kodak. They require a minimal purchase every year to have an account.
