I know that when a chicken squats it means an egg is a few weeks away. i have a 21week old ee named marylinn that for.the past.three days sees me coming and runs to me and squats. please tell me she doesn t think i am her rooster.
sorry for.the typos. i am on my andriod phone and cannot see what I am typing.

It sounds like she is ready to lay some eggs! I've had hens lay before squatting and vice versa!

Enjoy the pet!

How funny that she is squatting for me

. and here I thought she was the alpha and was not going to lay due to taking over rooster duties. I can't wait to see what she lays. She is my only EE that is of laying age. I hope it is any color but brown. I can't help but burst into laughter every time she does it.
