Hello yall, my Rhode Island Red just laid her first egg friday. Excited because we only have 1 other and it's a green legged hatch, and she hasn't laid yet. Well the RIR laid again saturday, then again Sunday. She is laying just a little bit after lunch. Ok when I got home my wife told me when she let them out today she thought she saw an egg in her rear/vent. When I went out to inspect I didn't see anything but she was flexing her tail. I read a couple of other threads and filled some warm water in the tub and put her in and held her there for 30 minutes. Nothing happened and she seemed very relaxed. So now she's out ranging a little before I put them up. She's still doing the flex thing here and there. I'm just wondering if there's anything going on or maybe my wife really didn't see "an egg". What do you think? Wait and see? Any suggestions would be great.
