I am so excited because a couple of my hens (Buff Orpington and Rhode Island Red) have started egg squatting in the past week or two!

I have been checking for eggs everyday but haven't seen any yet. Anyone have an idea of the range of time before they start laying? I think I remember reading somewhere that it can be anywhere from a couple days to a couple weeks after they start squatting ... is that right?

Thats good to hear! Squatting doesn't mean eggs are extremely close, but it does mean that you should expect eggs in a few weeks.

Awesome! I am hoping in the next week or two we get the first one since they have been doing it for about a week or so now. I thought we had one yesterday because I heard what I thought was the egg song but when I went outside to check ... no egg. Oh well they must have been practicing
