    My 3.5 month old Saxony girl is getting ready for something. She no longer likes to take treats out of my hand and keeps distance. She has also reduced her loud racking to a minimum. For the past 3 days she been working on a nest in the outdoor run putting rocks into it and sitting on it. I think she is getting close to lay her first egg. Won't be fertile, since the boy hasn't figured out yet what to do. He is the same age.

    Bless her [​IMG] At least she'll know what to do when she gets fertile ones and in the meantime you get lots of lovely eggs [​IMG]
