10 week old Hens

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Everything I have read on here says they are two young, but everyday in the last week that I have been checking the inside of their coop, I have noticed two nesting boxes with perfect little nests made. I level off the shavings, but the next evening, the little nests are back. Are they just getting ready and practicing? All my calculations say another two months before they will even begin to thing about laying.

Are you sure of their age? Twenty weeks of age is the very youngest a pullet will begin to lay. Many begin even later.

I am very sure. Bought them at one day old 10 weeks ago. I am going to take some other advice off of here and get a fake egg or two and catch which ones it is.
