    My girls are 22 weeks today and my Silver Cuckoo Maran squatted when I was next to her, I had read about it here but I had never seen it so it was really funny and exciting
    Soooo does that mean I will get an egg soon?
    I will post pictures of them tomorrow so you can tell me what you think about the color of their faces, I know no one can know for sure but just to have an idea [​IMG]

    Our chickens all layed within 3-5 days or so of squating. Some as early as the day after. Be excited [​IMG]

    My girls started squatting about 3 weeks ago and so far 4 of the 7 are now officially laying eggs. Only 1 of the 7 isn't squatting yet. It sure makes them easier to catch if they don't go in in the afternoon. [​IMG]

    aww thanks for the replies, I can't wait now [​IMG] ...I hope her eggs are really chocolate colored since she's a maran but I've read hatchery maran eggs are not as dark as they
    should
