Can a 14 week old pullet lay an egg? Which one is it?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I have a pen of 14 week old pullets.  They are a variety of breeds. 

6 Easter Eggers
1 Brown Leghorn
1 Silver Laced Wyandotte
1 Buff orpington
1 Red Sex Link
1 Production Red

The egg is a shiny light brown/tinted color.

I have had a couple pullets start laying at 16 weeks but never this early.
Has anyone ever had one start this young?

Which breed do you think layed the egg?

if you can find out which one has the darkest red comb and singing the  eggsong, lol  than you might find out, I guess might be the productions red.

Thanks God for everything I have and I don't have, thanks God for the Health and happiness and  the great Beleave in him and trusting him. Rich is not how much I have,but how much I can give, and how many real friends I can keep.Every day is a good day so long I can breath.

Could be the leghorn, sex link, or production red. Those breed are known for their production.

It's the clucking and ruckus they put out after they lay an egg.

your lucky lol mine are 19 weeks not an egg yet

The silence that guards the tomb does not reveal God's secret in the obscurity of the coffin, and the rustling of the branches whose roots suck the body's elements do not tell the mysteries of the grave, by the agonized sighs of my heart announce to the living the drama which love, beauty, and death have performed.

It's not the leghorn if the egg is brown.

I'm guessing it's the BO if its light brown and shiny.
