    This is my Australorp (I think) Beauty. My other two hens started laying and I would have thought she would be first. I believe she is about 24-28 weeks old. I am always impressed what some can see in a hen...so I thought I would post and see if any opinions are out there..Thanks :)[​IMG]

    She looks close to being able to lay. But all chickens are different so it could take a little longer.[​IMG]

    Kool..She freaks when the other hens lay their eggs, like she wants no part of it. She is kind of the prissy one, she is a beauty :) My Mom just loves her so much, thinks she is so pretty to watch.. I agree. And her eggs should be brownish?
