Thank you! i've been waiting and so excitedMy Rocks were laying before the squat! Then Blackie started squatting for us and Bam! She goes broody!! Ooh and she got mean, too. Just before the broody. She pecked at everything and everybody!!
Changed her name to Biting Blackie. Then changed her name to Momma.
It won't be long for you now! Those are signs of maturity. They'll lay real soon, you'll see.
Wow. Thanks! the anticipation!I'd suspect laying within the next 3 weeks or so. I've had some birds start squatting just a couple days before laying (or even start laying, then start squatting), and others have taken a few more weeks after beginning to squat.
I hope they start laying for your soon! It's always exciting to get the first eggs!
