Stupid question, but I keep hearing about a "squatting" behavior right before egg laying begins. What's that all about? Yesterday one of my hens that should be laying any time now (she's 19-20 weeks and fully red combed and wattled) was just squawking to beat the band (irritating my persnickety neighbor in the process sadly, so I'm expecting a nasty phone call-- even though it was only a thirty second squawk attack). Shortly there after she kept doing this weird squat and drop when ever my daughter and I would approach her. This is unusual for her, since she's a bit on the skittery side and tends to run off if she thinks that there is even a slight chance of being picked up. Is this significant for egg laying do you think? Also, if she starts laying, but my other two haven't-- is it still ok to introduce layer feed at this time? I know my Delaware, Sass is maybe days behind Cornelia (my prize squawking Barred Rock). But my other Barred Rock, Zinnia seems a few weeks behind (which is odd since she hatched the same day as Cornelia). Will layer feed be an issue to the non-layers?
