Yea! We got our first eggs yesterday!! We have 7 SLW hens and 6 PBR hens. They are 19 weeks old today. All my chicken friends were telling me not to expect eggs until the 24th week. We got three eggs, but one membrane was not firm enough to hold the contents of the egg. I’m sure it’s because it was her first one, but we plan to put some oyster shells in their coop.
