    Just a bit ago I went down to the coop and did not see one chicken in the run nor under the coop. Looked in the the big window and one BO was in a nest and the rest was standing there watching. Looks like this egg laying thing is going to be a community affair. But she did't do anything. Just a practice run I suppose.

    Maybe they were waiting for her to get done so they could go out and play.

    Sometimes ours get "cold feet" when others are watching. It's like they want their privacy! [​IMG]

    I've got on BR in "training", she watches all the other girls lay eggs, but the alpha hen will raise a fuss if the BR watches her [​IMG]
