    At 5am I wake to egg song. [​IMG]

    I have 2 older hens that have been giving an egg here and there, but I don't think this was them.

    The younger girls are 19-20 weeks. AND there was an egg-like thing in the doghouse. The shell was papery and there was a hole in it where the yolk slipped out. BUT... I am thinking somebody is getting her egg on. [​IMG]

    Gosh I love the egg song. The funniest thing is that my roosters seem to be more enthusiastic about doing it than my hens.

    My RIR would stand outside the nest box and sing to the silkies laying (they hang out together) Now I know where the expression "egging them on" comes from!! [​IMG]
