Hi there. I'm new to hen keeping so I find this site brilliant for answers. I found an egg (small) in the hens box. My hen is 14 weeks old, no older, as I raised them from one week old. I thought it might be another 6 or 8 weeks before it laid its first egg. At the moment I have one hen and one rooster so it's definitely from the hen. Upon collection and in my excitment I just wondered whether someone might have put it in there for a joke, however, the egg is smallish. Do you think it's possible for such a young bird to lay an egg? I think hen is a black australothorpe?? It has access to garden and has a very varied diet. Thank you.
