I just got my first egg from my hens this week. It is from my one hen Maureen and I have gotten 4 eggs so far. For a couple weeks now she has been overly friendly when I am by them and if I reach out to pet her she crouches down and puts her wings down, stickr her but in the air and wants me to ppet her. I now have another hen that is starting to act the same way, I am wondering if she is getting ready to lay also. They have alsways been a little stittish unless I am bribing then with food, so I am wondering if the egg laying and their love for me are connected????? Any thoughts?
