Who turned on the lights?

 Predawn at the coop...
We are crossing our fingers our girls are going to start laying us
some eggs.
They will be 20 weeks on Friday.
We have set some lights on timers.
We are hoping 14 hours of light will get some eggs out of these girls.
They were very curious looking out the big door into the early morning.
This picture the girls are just standing there, looking out the pop door. 
It reminded me of early morning commuters waiting for their train.
So glad to be in the coop than standing waiting for a train.
Mornings like this I do love working from home.
 Bossy and Perry looked out the pop door to be sure the coast was clear.
The girls then began venturing out in the early morning light. 
Hoping this wooden egg in the nesting box inspires one of our girls...
and the egg watch continues...

Good luck on the eggs. Loved the pictures! I never knew that a fake egg could inspire them. Neat.

Oh, this post has made me so sad...

What darling girls you have. Congrats on the egg!
Bonne Semaine,

Wait... forgive me... I was admiring your photos more than reading... is that a fake "encouragement" egg?
