They were hatched February 21st so by my reckoning that's seventeen weeks exactly. A week earlier to the day than last year's batch.
Doesn't matter how many birdss I've had over the years it's always exciting to find the first eggs from a flock of pullets. I ordered sixty of them this year and gradually sold all but the dozen I kept for myself as started or point of lay pullets. Works out more or less that I get the ones I kept for free at their point of lay.
Two more flocks of this year's pullets to go!
