My Dominique "Lovable" has been squatting for 3 weeks, and talking to me for about 2 weeks (she's 19 weeks and 2 days), anyway, she has been in the nest box at least twice in the past 2 hours. She's in there breathing heavy, getting up and down and the other chickens are at the doorway watching her every move. It's just like a woman in labor. She's uncomfortable and the other chickens are waiting to see when it's going to happen. This will be her first egg and mine too for that matter. It will be today won't it?
