This is my first flock. The ages are 15.5-22.5 weeks old. They are getting ready to lay. I have 3 squatters and 2 singing the egg song. My RIR was laying down in the nest box with her back end against the nest box wall. what is strange is my SS was singing the egg song over and over to the RIR. My SS has some strong lungs and is very LOUD! Why was my SS singing the egg song to the RIR? She hasn't laid an egg yet. After about 20-30 minutes my RIR hops out of the nest and the SS is quiet and no egg. What's funny is all the other chicks were gathered around to see what was going on. The 22 week old EE tried to sing the egg song, but didn't quite get it. My RIR was also singing the egg song near the end, but she is not nearly as loud as my SS. Do y'all think I'll get my long awaited egg today??? I sure hope so. It was pretty neat to be in the coop to witness it all. My babies are growing up fast.
