    I'm still waiting, my 5 pullets are almost 18 weeks old!!! I thought they were bought on April 4 but my husband informed me it was May 4th so they were about 2 weeks old on May 4th

    Mine are EEs, so I expect they'll take longer. They're about 18-19 weeks. BUT, two of them joined in the EGG SONG today with an older hen. Isn't that sweet? Of course, I missed it, but my husband said it was cute, in an adolescent, cracky voice kinda way!! LO. Can't wait for their eggs.
