    Okay, not to sound like a tabloid here but I think my 14 week old Golden Laced Wyandotte layed an egg! Found in the egg box a pullet sized wyandotte egg. My hens are 8 months old and giving me big eggs. This pullet is the most mature of my 14 week old flock and found haunting a laying box. Is this possible?

    I've had a couple 14-15 week olds lay an egg, another possibility is it could also be a wind/fart egg from your older girls.

    So it's not impossible? I'm new and just hadn't heard of this before.

    Not impossible, just unusual. You may just have one precocious girl there.
