Little chicks are 18 weeks old. Will be 19 weeks tomorrow on the 22nd. Got my first "Teeny Weeny" egg last friday from one of my Doms!! I had no expectations of getting eggs for at least 3 more weeks! Got another little egg yesterday. So far it seems that only one of the little doms are laying....but, who would have "thought" it. I am so proud of her.....I sent pics to everyone. I will try to post. The little eggs are so cute......I haven't been able to eat one yet. I keep posting that Doms are the best. The proof is in the pudding. My doms are little pets. Easily handled, friendly and now little early layers. What a great Christmas present.
