    OK, now that I have these very pretty new ladies who also lay eggs, Millie is not the only one. Millie will lay her egg - sometimes she announces it when she lays it but sometimes... she lays it quietly and when she sees that one of the other ladies is laying an egg, will go back to her nest and sit there for about 10-15 minutes, come out and announce her egg.

    When I mentioned this at dinner my grandmother said that she forgot to announce it. [​IMG]

    Any idea why she does this? Also, she does not share her nest box with the other ladies. Millie was alone for about 4 months. Now she has lots of chickens for friends. (12 all together)
