I have six 9 week old GLW and I found 3 eggs in the coop this morning! Is it normal for them to lay so young?:eek:

I think anywhere from 4 mo. to 6 mo. is usually average for most breeds.

I only have the 6 Wyandotte hens. They are all the same age, I think! I bought them online and they were supposedly "day old chicks". I also have a young Sebright rooster who wandered in one day and shares their coop.

Yeah, wow! I have 2 GL Wyandottes that are now 18 weeks old and I am looking every day for that first egg. You are indeed lucky. My 2 have decided to sleep in the nesting box so I made another box which my older hen went right in and is laying her eggs there. She seems to be very adaptable.

That's a bit unheard of...Wow. At nine weeks they are only two months old. Mine at nine weeks still looked like babies. My GLW started laying at 20/21 weeks and I thought I was doing good for that breed.
