I have 4 chickens only two of them are doing the chicken squat, when will they lay
Hi there, and welcome to BYC!
Generally within one week of the birds doing the squat, you will see eggs. So you are coming down the home stretch now!
Keep your eyes peeled for that first egg! Put some fake eggs in the nest boxes to tell the hens where you want them to lay. And if you free range your birds, you may have to go on an egg hunt!
Great to have you aboard!
Welcome to BYC!
Welcome to BYC! It's very exciting! Once chickens start "the squat" VERY soon after that eggs will be coming ad it's good luck to post about your eggs here!
Thanks, I share a coop with my friend, she has two Americanas that are a little older than mine and one just layed it's first egg today
Great! Actually one of mine laid its first today too
They have been doing the squat for a while now but they are only 4 months old, they were born October 2. I don't know why they are doing the squat?
Mine didn't lay till they were 6-7 mo old....they might be a little young yet.....
What kind of chickens are they? Some breeds lay earlier than others, and also squat for a little longer before laying a egg. Or do you have a rooster? And if so is it older? He might be more mature than her and start trying things
My Americana and my dark Cornish are squating, it might be because they see my friends doing it since they share a coop, my friends are older and have been doing it for a while, she has two Americanas
