    I just had to brag, my pretty little snowy white leghorn pullet started laying last Tuesday at 16w3d, and has now laid 11 eggs in 11 days! I thought she might lay a couple, then take a day or two off, not get right into full-time laying.

    Now if the other girls would follow her example... 2 BRs, a SLW, and a minorca still waiting to lay. The minorca's comb flopped today, and one of the BR's earlobes are bright red... hoping that's a sign.
