    Checked the nest boxes today and nothing... Around 12pm ran to the post office and noticed one of the hens was in the coop, so I lifted the lid to the nest box and she just looked at me like..."Helloooo...I'm busy here." So I left her alone.

    Came out around 1:30pm to check the box and look what I found!!

    Here's my Paprikash...what she was going to be if she didn't lay soon

    I really believe in the "Squat"...the one that layed the egg started squating last week. I have another one that also started squating about two days later. I noticed that two nest boxes were rustled around in today. I think another one might start laying soon!
