    [​IMG] I went out to check on the hens and my 19 week Red Star did the squat for me when I went to pet her. Then she shook it off. I was so happy I almost screamed. Then I did it again for fun so I could see her do again. [​IMG]

    Come to think of it she was looking in the nest box briefly today.

    I've had pullets before but its been 4 years or so since, so how long, a week or so? or is it too hard to tell yet when that long awaited pullet egg arrives?

    Thx [​IMG] I just couldn't contain my excitement

    I went out to replace the golf balls with ping pong balls today and I found a beautiful dark brown pullet egg!! [​IMG]

    She was so excited too, its rainy and nasty here today and she was the only outside when I went out to the hen house. She came running into the house and was looking in the nest box as if to show me. [​IMG] She was very proud of herself and so am I!!

    For all those waiting, be patient, eggs will come
