    My pullet is bredd 5_6 times a day
    and doing the squat so loud I want
    know what will she do the day of
    laying her first egg I mean how will
    she behave
     
  2. She may poke around the nestboxes or check around the coop for a good place to lay. Now is the time to put fake eggs in the nestboxes. Also, be sure to check around nestbox-like nooks and crannies in your coop and run--she may already be laying where she isn't supposed to be.

    I just got my first layer a few days ago and another today. They kept getting in the nest boxes, tossing wood chips onto their backs. The one today got in the nest for around 15 minutes, then got out. She did this a few times before she actually laid the egg.

    My pullet was sqating loud and
    then ran into the coop and sat on
    the nest box after 10 minuets, she
    squated even louder then I ran
    into the coop to the nest box but
    there was no egg
