We got 6 BO peeps in the spring which were our first chicks, we did have some Hamburgs previously but we got them when they were a year old and they were already laying eggs. So the BO's have been fun and new to us as we watch them grow. Well of course we have been anticipating eggs and I have read many times on BYC about squatting and know that only those here will understand our excitement. Two of my BO's squatted just yesterday. I had opened the door to the run and all of the hens made their way out to scratch around except for Pot-Pie, she just stayed in the run so I went in to kind of scoot her out, putting my hand behind her to just get her going and she moved a few feet and squatted. I scratched her back and called for my wife to show her, my wife picked her up and took her out with the other girls. Funny because Pot-Pie kept going back to my wife and just wanted to be held like a puppy, these silly chickens. Then this morning after I opened the coop they all came out, shortly Pot-Pie was doing the egg song. I know this song from our Hamburgs... I think we are getting closer to egg laying. We also noticed how several of them their cones and waddles are bigger and brighter than the others. These BO's are so much bigger than our Hamburgs and so much more calmer, easy going, friendly, run to you when you call them, big beautiful birds and have been so fun watching them grow. Anyway I just wanted to share our excitement with you all, we should be getting some eggs soon.
