I have 7 chickens that r going on 26 weeks old and have yet to lay me an egg! I was up in the coop today and I seen one chicken squat down and my rooster did his business ! Does that mean eggs are soon to follow ? For about a week or two I've caught the rooster in the nesting boxes making nosies. Am I finally about to get some eggs???

Are they free ranging at all? If so, they might already be doing a little laying out there. If not, you should see eggs soon as an intelligent rooster usually won't breed a hen unless she is either in lay or coming into lay.
