Honestly. I've become a crazy woman. I mean, I keep checking the nest boxes throughout the day, wondering if I'll find a shiny new blue or green egg. I like to think I'm a fairly balanced individual but the waiting is driving me nuts. My girls (EE) are 18/19 weeks old and some of them have developed bright red combs and have been doing the egg squat for a week or so ... but they haven't been investigating the nest boxes. I'm due to leave in a week for a short vacation and I'm pretty sure the little rascals will start laying while I'm gone! Argh!
