    This is the fourth time today my girl is teasing me with her beautiful Egg Song... no egg yet, but I will keep checking every time I hear her..lol It is so cute, she sings and all of the girls rush to the coop door to find out it if happened yet. They are just like people awaiting the arrival of a little one! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I had to laugh at your post....because the same thing happened to me, TOO!! My first layer sang and sang and sang, mostly bwaaking, but occasionally the egg song...drove me NUTS! Like you, I kept going out there, checking, nothing. After about the third day of this nonsense I finally said "that's it, stick a fork in me, I'm done!" and I quit checking.

    It wasn't 4 hours later she did it again, I made myself stay in the house...I'm not going out there....NOT! I went out, peeked in the nest boxes, and there was the most beautiful little light brown egg I ever saw!! [​IMG] So just about the time you're ready to give up, they'll fool you and lay their first egg.....

    Best of luck to you!! Let us know!

    And you are right, it is the most beautiful little brown egg I have ever seen. [​IMG]

    Can't wait till mine get old enough to do that, but since they are only one month old, I have to wait till December. [​IMG]
