    My WL laid her first egg yesterday. Actually this is my first egg ever. When they first start laying is in infrequent? I mean can she lay and egg and then maybe go a few days before laying another one. Then as time progresses she will get on a "regular" schedule. I am taking into consideration that since she is a WL she will be laying quite often.

    I have found that each bird has it's own laying pattern. Some pullets lay their first eggs every couple of days and some lay for a couple days and then take a couple days off. Eventually, they all get into their own pattern.

    By the way, congratulations on that first egg! Isn't it exciting?! [​IMG]

    Yes it really is exciting. It was really quite a fuss out in the chicken house too! You would have thought by all the commotion the sky was falling. [​IMG]
