    Hey! Congrats on your first egg, I think it is the break in the heat that has them getting cranked up. Mine have been laying for about two weeks now, but they seem to wait until we have a small break (right after a thunderstorm, early morning).

    I see you are from Manchester, howdy neighbor, kinda. We are in Southside (Montgomery County)
