    15-week old chicken laid egg

    Hi, I am concerned on my 15-week old chicken as today she laid her first egg(of course shell-less), should i start giving her layer feed? As i am concerned she is still young then she might become malnourished due to the early egg laying.

    My Chickens Stay Mostly in the Coop

    For a few days now my 7 chickens have remained inside the coop and not coming down to the run most of the day. I don't understand why. None of them seem sick. I can coax them out for a few minutes to eat some snacks, but they will go right back in. A robin did try and build a nest in the yard...
