    Do you think is real or did someone play a joke on us?? She is about half the size of an adult and she has no combs. I am so curious i thought is was to early for laying.[​IMG]

    5 1/2 weeks is way too early for her to be laying. Some one has pulled a fast one on you. Unless you have older hens that are laying.

    The egg was brown and kinda smallish. Not tiny but way smaller than an XL egg you would buy at the store.

    they don't lay brown eggs- they lay green, blue and I think pink. Somebody is playing you.
