    I was wondering, does this mean she should be laying now? He did it right in front of me, I was quite embarassed [​IMG]. They are all 19 weeks today. Should I be getting an egg now?

    You do know that you dont need a rooster for eggs right? It doesnt mean she is gonna lay an egg now, but if she squats for you, you can expect them soon.

    Yes I do know that we don't need a man to ovulate, I mean she don't need a Rooster to lay eggs. [​IMG] I just thought that maybe since he was trying to mate her that she should be laying his babies soon. She has been squatting for 3 weeks and has been talking to me for 2 weeks.

    It should happen pretty soon. Mine was squatting and talking for probably about a month before she finally laid one.....I swore she was NEVER going to. [​IMG]
