I've been expecting Johnny to be the first to lay an egg, which she just did, but there were two things I wasn't expecting. One, she went right up the ramp and dug around in the nesting box, which they've completely ignored until now, and settled in until she had done it. I didn't do the golf balls or ceramic eggs or anything. How do they know this stuff? Two, Ginny followed her inside and stayed by her side chirping softly to her the whole time, as if to comfort her. Ginny always watches out for Johnny, since Johnny gets very upset if she loses sight of the others or gets left behind, or is the last up the ramp. But really, a midwife?
