    Pullet. I'd think she's laying by now, if you're sure she's not then she should be quite soon.

    well 'henry' laid an egg last night so that seals the deal
    but she still seems to be crowing in the morning
    prolly cuz she's separated from the flock

    anyways were working on re-integrating her now

    fingers crossed
