The First Eggs!
The ladies have begun producing eggs a few weeks earlier than expected -- I found these two little treasures neatly deposited into one of the nesting boxes earlier today. Definitely the start of something good!
Very nice! I'm still waiting on my girls (19 weeks old). Enjoy!
@ Heather - Hens begin laying eggs when they are somewhere between 16 and 20 weeks old. According to what I was told, the ladies should all be about 16 weeks old, but it is evident that a few them are more developed, which leads me to believe that some of them might actually be a week or two older. If your hens are 19 weeks, then you should start seeing eggs very soon.
