    :yesss:Hi! My chicken Pancake has had several threads about her since she was 2days old.

    This is the first Amber link I have ever had and the only one I have currently.

    She is 17 weeks I think.

    Anyway I was going out to the chicken coop because I thought I heard something attacking her and she was just out there screaming her head off. I didn’t know what was wrong with her so I shoved her in her house to let her calm down and little did I know she layed an egg!

    Is this normal for this breed?

    Anything will help!:thumbsup

    I also have posted a thread recently about my duck. She is broody!
    And I am so so so happy for her! Any advice would be appreciated for both of my threads!
    Thank you so much https://www.backyardchickens.com/posts/21480274/

    Welcome :frow Nice to have you here! No experience with Amber links but many production breeds start laying at 16 - 20 weeks
