I'd posted the other day because my chickens were getting into their 20's (weeks), but we'd not seen a single egg from any of the 7 girls. We actually have 10 total, but 3 aren't close enough to laying age yet. This morning, when I checked our boxes, there was a little brown egg with the white decoys I put in there. We're pretty sure it's Mary's egg because her comb and wattle are the reddest and biggest, and her pelvic spacing is the widest - and has been for the longest. Honey, Penny, Darling and Abbey are all squatting when you touch them on their backs, their combs and wattles are getting big and red, and most of their pelvic spacing is getting larger. The only exception is Darling. I can only fit one finger between the 2 points, and it's been that way for about 2 weeks despite the fact that the other signs are getting more pronounced. The last few days, she's had poop on her little butt when I've checked her. Her butt's not gross and filthy all over, but she's never had anything on it before. I may be worrying too much, but is this a sign that she may be having trouble? If there's an egg in there, there's no way she's going to be able to get it out because her spacing is as tight as the chickens that are showing zero signs of getting close. We have the Epsom salt and the tub ready - just like we've got everything else ready to take care of whatever happens to them. Am I worrying too much? These are my first chicken children, and while I accept the fact that sometimes you lose chickens to predators and illness, I want to do whatever I can to prevent it.
