    She may be sitting on eggs. I am going to look for her tomorrow.

    If I find her, I will take the eggs.

    Quote:Me too. She should be close by. The only problem is the corn fields are really BIG.

    Quote:Have they been cropped out yet? Or are they still 6 foot tall fields? Cause you may only find her when she comes home with chicks if they are still tall! [​IMG]

    Yep, Very tall. I am not sure when they are due to cut, but I will need to find out if I can't find her.

    It's usually october in the US, but I know it can be as early as August. With the weather this year, the harvest in Michigan is probably going to be late (since it was difficult to plant when they should have... 52 days of rain in 2 months!!!). I'd find your farmer and ask soon just in case.

    Good glad you have her. Maybe she was just off roaming around? I hope she can have another nest without any problems.[​IMG]
